I see we missed the big "Snowout!"

I rationalized for years how I loved all of the four seasons of Michigan while shoveling and later snowblowing the snow that amassed at our doorstep. That made it easier to cope with the stresses of long, slippery drives and piling the snow alongside the driveway and sidewalks. Rationalization made it easier to cope with. Now, I am really glad to listen to and watch the birds outside our Montana and walking Sunshine as we explore the woodsy/marshy area around the campground. We just missed seeing an Armadillo this morning. Some neighbors were all excited and running around with their cameras looking for it to return. Carol and I worked hard for many years and now are enjoying some of the rewards of doing so. We would much rather see reports of the "Blizzard of the Century" on television or in the newspaper (yes, I still read the newspaper) than have to deal with it directly. Think I'll go take a nap under the patio awning.
