A Two Inch Nuisance

I had another two inches last night. At this point, don't I wish.

They are calling it a "nuisance" snow.

It is nice and fluffy and is clinging to the trees as you can see below. This is ski weather. Nice new snow, relatively warm, no wind. And here I sit with my skis still at my friend's house in Park City, UT where they've been for the past 10 years. I need to get back out to visit, and I need to get back into skiing.

The deer paid a visit last night. If you engorge the photo, you can see their tracks where they visited the bushes during the night. They (the evergreens) are still recovering from a deerfest three years ago during a particularly hard winter. I've been nursing them back and they're about 80% back to normal.

It's time for me to make my Irish Spring sachets. I cut up a bar of soap, wrap it in cheesecloth, and then place it on the shrub at nose height so the deer get a snoot full of Ireland when they make a run for a midnight snack.

We got more snow as well yesterday. It snowed all day - we got another 5 inches - but like your's it's all fluffy and shit. But I still have to shovel.

MMmmmm, manly, yes, but I like it, too! Why do deer hate Irish Spring?

Michael---I'm not sure, but I heard that somewhere. The also say to pee on the bushes but I think I'll stick to making the sachets!
