This little bit of life was almost wiped out. When our plant order was delivered the truck driver had put a propane Heater in with the plants ( so as not to freeze them) can you guess what happened....the heater caught the nearest pallet on fire thus starting a pretty good blaze......after stopping to use the Restroom the guy decides to check on his delivery...when he opens the rear door ...well you can imagine his surprise. I guess the fire had been burning for awhile and had sucked the oxygen out of the trailer( so it was smoldering away) when the door was opened and fuel provided the fire burst back into life...from here I'm not sure what he did first..at some point he got a fire extinguisher and managed to take care of his immediate problem...he threw all the boxes out of the truck you can pretty much figure out how they fared....and then if that wasn't enough ...because they were outside for some time( truck driver mopping up the mess) they kinda froze...is this some kind of omen.Anyhow half our order was destroyed and the other half is pretty ugly. We put in a claim and the new stuff has been replaced and sent...just as an afterthought ....the same guy delivered the new order and when he delivered next door he hit a guys truck....maybe a new career is in order? or maybe it really is some kind of weird thing...(not wanting to pick on the truck driver)
The challenge for this Sunday is Weather...so this is where the whining comes back in....around here for the last two or so weeks this about all we're getting....boring and depressing...but here goes. This is what we have been getting for the last few weeks.I'm not so sure anymore that the phrase "burn in hell" has a lot of meaning ....I'm starting to think that the other phrase " when hell freezes over" has happened ....because I'm sure feeling like I'm there. Is it ever going to go away?
I won't be making use of this anytime soon.
I wish I was one of these guys....just put your head down and keep on eating. By the way these horses are Blue Roans( Winter Black) they are looking like Belgians or big Haflinger type horses.
Some don't care about the snow it really is a dog's life,they know they can come into the house and curl up and get all comfy and dry.
From Whiteouts to blinding brightness. This is the first sun and blue sky we have seen around here for over a week
This is the first time I've seen that Mtn Range in about a week, I almost forgot how pretty it can be.
I'm hoping this is the end of this stuff.
The one thing I do have as a sanity saver is being able to go in the Greenhouse close the door and forget what's going on outside...and getting to create this.
No they aren't quite there yet but I'm working on it. so that's it for me, speaking of work gotta run...lots to do. I'll check you all out later.
HAVE A GREAT WEEK
