A beautiful day, post blizzard! The mountains are breathtaking; the streets make your palms sweat (even though it's -7 degrees Fahrenheit). They have had snow removal crews running day and night shifts for the last 48 hours to try and keep the streets clear. I had to run to the store today because we were out of very important stay at home supplies, like milk and coffee. But I can pretty much guarantee I won't be leaving my warm, cozy house again until Tuesday morning when I have to drag it out to go to work. My adventurous big little son has been skiing every day for the last 3 days, in negative 7 degree weather. It has snowed literally feet of powder at Bridger Bowl. That makes for a very happy fella!, and a fingernail chewing mom because of the winter roads required to travel to Bridger Bowl. And Mr. Bruce is chomping at the bit because the big annual “New Year's Eve Party Hearty Cabin Community Festival” is tomorrow night! That is, if any of the hosts can make it the 150 to 200 miles they have to travel to get to their cabins! I tell you, the roads are terrifying right now! Several families in the cabin community (and specifically 2 couples that had offered to open their cabins as hosts this year) live as far away as Billings and Red Lodge. Personally, I will be at home, in front of a roaring Tulikivi fire, sipping hot chocolate, and partaking of a good book. Since the cabin is still in it's “shed-like” condition, I will forgo the festivities, and tend the home fires. Bruce can party til the cows come home. Or the moose, as it may be, at the cabin 😀
Happy New Year!
