From the inside

(Kind of makes the fire feel good and all that wood cutting worthwhile!)



  1. Wow cool! Those icicles are awesome!! They seriously look *dangerous* though. So pretty!

    You have the *nicest* view from your family room. It must be so happy being all cozy and warm in your home and looking out at such a pretty scene.

    (How are the roads out that way? I’m trying to figure out where to go tomorrow, though I might explore the Blackfoot a little and stick closer to home.)

  2. Sara,

    Yes, it’s great to be warm and still see all the snow we want.

    The roads here are pretty bad. I wouldn’t recommend driving in this area for anyone who doesn’t absolutely have to. I drove to about 10 miles down the cutoff Monday to an accident scene and it was glare ice all the way. It hasn’t gotten any better since.

  3. Okay, thanks for the heads up. I’ll keep that in mind when planning my excursion tomorrow. Maybe I’ll just go a bit east out to the Blackfoot then. It’s not far from home, so if it’s bad I can turn around and come back easily. That’s probably a safer and more sensible option.

    Bummer. I’d like to see the bison range in the snow. (I’m going to be baking cookies tonight and the cookie fairy was going to make a visit at your place. :D)

    Well, there will be a whole winter of opportunities, I’m sure.

  5. Yep, if one hasn’t gotten that wood cut by now, these photographs will look similar to pictures taken INSIDE the house.

  6. Sara,

    That sounds a lot safer! There will be plenty of time later to see the Bison Range and this area with snow. By the way, we have about a foot on the ground here now.

  7. Silken,

    It’s nice to have the option of staying inside by the fire or going out in the snow.

  8. Malcolm,

    After a winter like this one has started out to be, it will be easy to remember to get that wood cut and stacked early! The last several winters have been very mild, but this is like some of the old fashioned ones!

  9. Rather scary looking icicles.

  10. Yes, they’re getting a little heavy. I’ll have to remove them tomorrow.

  13. Bo,

    When we built this place, I remembered that my Dad always liked what they called back then, “picture windows” and so we put a big one in the living room. Mother Nature changes the decorations for us along with the seasons.

  14. Thanks, Anna!

    We love having that view too!
