It's for family-

Just a few minutes here today; it's Christmas Eve, and we do a pretty traditional type of celebration.  But it's family that's important for us, right now.

I wanted to do a little post here, though; because over the past months, I've come to feel quite a few of you- are family, too.  There's been lots of kind support for us through our various weird disasters; and it's truly appreciated.

So- for those of you who unfortunately live where there is no snow- here's the view out our front door yesterday-  (this may be more enjoyable if you turn the sound off {it's almost a silent snowfall; so the camera mike was high and noisy} - and it's a short short clip; more impact if you repeat it a couple times...)

We enjoy it. Feeling pretty snug, here in the Little House- in spite of the fact we are truly snowed in- unless it were a real emergency, we can't go anywhere right now; the road in (3/8 mile long) is drifted shut, and the tractor to plow it out is not likely to start at 10°F. Extraordinary measures are always possible - but it would take all day.  So.  The weather outside is frightful; but the stove is so delightful-

Happy holidays to you all- whichever the holiday; and wherever you are.

Hi Greenpa, thank you for sharing your beautiful snow. I'm in Seattle for Christmas, and it has been rainy and dark...

I have enjoyed following your blog, and have gained much inspiration from your thoughts and stories. Have a wonderful Christmas!

I'm in Oakland CA for the last fourteen years, have not gone up to the Sierras in winter in ages, and I really, really miss snow. Urban snow (NYC) and country snow (Illinois, where I spent six years of my childhood).

Thanks for this clip, and Merry Christmas!

Thanks for the snow, Greenpa. As a displaced Northerner here in the South, I miss the snow at this time of year. Happy Holidays to you and your family.

Happy Christmas!

Hope you all have a much more pleasantly eventful new year, and good health the whole year through!

Thanks for sharing your knowledge and also your trials and tribulations -- it's good to learn about the creative side of making do, fixing things, to know what the possibilities are when things go wrong.

Take care,
