Deep Freeze

Even though the sun was out yesterday and the day before and some snow melted, temps have dropped into the 20s at night, only rising to mid 30s during the day.  That snow still left has a thick ice crust that makes walking treacherous.  Most of the goat pen was white, but the girls happily made their way into the big pen where the grass was green under the big protecting oak.  The bird bath is a skating rink.

I make no apologies for taking yesterday off.  Drama is draining.  The wood rack is low, but I'm not so foolish as to trek back and forth pulling the wagon over ice.  I'm not looking forward to driving to Cameron Park today for a follow-up appointment with the oncologist.  Since it's in the afternoon, I can only hope the roads are not going to be a slip-and-slide on the hills and curves.  I'd rather get my drama from a good book any day.

Good luck at doctors and of course, on that road....
At least another several days of no rain or snow..
Thinking garden but hard to have spring fever when it is only 32 this morning.

Hope the trip to Cameron Park was not slippery and had a good outcome! Sunshine has come to Coastal Southern California, but temps are very low in morn and afternoon. Strange for me to have a heater on, but it is now! And I agree - drama only in your book or on TV.
