The air was cold and clear and filled with the fresh, clean, wonderful smell of newly fallen snow. The dry kind of snow, that you get when it is snowing at ten degrees below zero. The weakest breath of air made snow flakes fall glittering from the branches of the tall trees. The color of the sky was the most beautiful blue. Skiing around our small property I saw fresh tracks from roe deer and moose. The month of January was showing itself from its very best side.
Coming home from work yesterday, our car got stuck in the snow about 150 meters from our house. It took me about half an hour with the snow blower until I could get it loose and all the way into the garage. Then another hour to clear the way properly. This morning it was still snowing, so I had another round with the snow blower before going to work. Today I am so grateful to my snow blower, I have to post a picture of it (taken in november, there’s a lot more snow here now).
