A Welcome Surprise

Tuesday the county plowed three miles of the road Andy uses, so he had to do only 3.6 miles. Needless to say that was a welcome surprise. 🙂

The Sun Came Out!

This is the view from our porch down here yesterday, taken with camera zoom:

I’m a great believer in the saying,

Sometimes we have to make our own sunshine.

But it sure is nice when we don’t have to!

January Weather

What is January like for you? It’s officially summer for Cathy in New Zealand, and it appears to be very warm for Rummuser in Pune, India. And Linda is in Minnesota, which has a reputation for miserable winters.

Our weather this January has been strange — more precipitation, but down here in town most of it in the form of rain. Portland, Oregon is just the opposite — snow storm after snow storm instead of their usual rain. Not that all the residents of the zoo are complaining.

Has your weather been unusual too?

Heavy, Wet Snow

Not too much down here, and it started melting right away. But there were 6-8 inches on top of ice up in the mountains. Andy had to put chains on the Jeep (took about an hour) and drive slowly, so it took him 2 1/2 hours instead of the usual hour to get up to the house. He had lunch, spent about 2 1/2 hours plowing the roads, and drove home. It was another slow trip, partly because of the dense fog as he got closer to town.

I’m afraid I’m more like Hobbes than Calvin:

Yay, Angus!

Vancouver Coastal Health has manged to reduce hospital-acquired infections by 50%, but they want to do a lot more. One thing they’re trying is having Angus, a C. difficile-sniffing dog, find traces of the bug, then sending in a robot to use ultraviolet light to kill it.

Good for them, and yay, Angus! No wonder dogs get free passes to heaven.

Great Quote

I came across a great quote the other day.

When life is sweet, say thank you and celebrate.
When life is bitter, say thank you and grow.

I love it! It reminds me of my favorite prayer when life gets challenging,

Thank You, Lord, for the opportunity. I sure hope you know what you’re doing!
