Too much snow...

...it hasn’t snowed this much for about 10 years. On the way out to shovel cabin roofs had to navigate through the deer and moose (can’t see the moose) milling about on the road. The snow is so deep these animals have nowhere else to go…

Got up on the roof and shoveled & shoveled till I was all tuckered out…and never even saw the roof. At some the point the shovel ‘slipped’ out off my hands and fell to the ground-a Freudian slip, as it were.

I was able to dig my way in to one of the cabins and find some snow gear-yea!

...doo, doo, doo looking out my back door.

Oh, Kevin, I love the "road full of deer" shot....and the skiis!! It was probably time to get off that roof anyway, right?

Hi-yes, the road full of deer was an unusual sight. By the time the shovel slipped out of my hands I was soaked-so good timing I guess.

Wow, that is just so beautiful. Although I'm not a fan of cold, I wish we could get a good snow like that.

Hello citizen: One of the nice things about a big snow is how quiet everything is; it provides for a kind of fairy tale ambience.

Funny how this stuff works. I was doing a search for Epiphone Elitist Les Pauls on Google and was directed to your blog. The pic of the deer in the snowy road stopped me dead in my tracks. Amazing image. Reminds me (again) why I moved to Oregon. They were here first... and they will be here long after we're gone.

Now, where is that guitar???
