Winter Wonderland

Pictures by Randy

Randy went out and shot a few pics. I thought y’all may enjoy them.


Sneaux Day

The snow pretty much ended yesterday, but not before blanketing almost everything.




We haven’t found out what the official tally was, but it was at least 4 ½”

A little bit of the “wonder” wore off when the power went out. Even more so when you consider that without power…we had no running water since the well pump is electric also.  But, that was ok. We had water stockpiled from hurricane prep and the little house contains a wonderful stand-alone propane heater.  We three were nice and cozy in the great room and spent an evening by candlelight. I even managed to write out some Christmas cards and marveled that not long ago everyone worked by this kind of light at night.

Power was restored this afternoon and it was nice to be able to do dishes and take a shower-ahhh, the small pleasures.  We survived and still remain totally gratefully for our new place.

Well, there is not much work being done today on the house-LOL.

Mom is visiting and we woke up to a winter wonderland this morning.  We are at 2 inches,  it is still snowing and forecast to go until noon!

or… Pimp My Farm.

Randy and I are trying to take pictures daily to show progress and I will attempt to get them into this blog in a timely manner.

Currently our new home is a large slab of red clay being set up for the foundation lay and pour.  Since the rain has started and things may move slow, I thought I would show y’all how we got to this point.  As we approached the new construction date we were sad that our only option seemed to be to bulldoze the old house to make way for the new one. Then a neighbor expressed interest and Yeah!! In the course of just a few weeks he had removed the porches and cut down the roofs in preparation for the move. Then the movers came and moved it right down the road.  It was an incredible event. (note: if you ever want to make ALL the traffic on your street slow WAY down all the time, tell them you are going to move your house. )
