ON THE BACK BURNER

Feb. 14

A couple of different things happened today. It snowed. I haven’t seen this much snow in 15 years. ( exception is 7 inches inJerusalem when Bob and I Were visiting one January.) There  was about 3 inches of soft , white , unblemished snow. Then I heard someone stealing my snow! My son got out early to clean off my deck and make me a path. That was extra sweet. Then, the biggest surprise.  Notice how I haven’t mentioned Dixie. The same Texas recycled senior dog ,who hates rain. The same gal that I  have to drag out of the house during a light shower,after  she hasn’t peed in 15 hours . She loved the snow. She did her version of the zoomies. She plowed into small snow drifts. She  pranced. Go figure. Before I could make my morning coffee on this strange day of snow and Dixie’s passion for snow, I found that I had no water. That was a little inconvenient. I didn’t think it was that cold and the pipes have electric tape on them. Still one section managed to freeze. I felt right at home and I didn’t forget what living in an over 100 year old house had taught us. My son did some jiggling, I moved the portable heater into the bathroom where all of the vitals are for the trailer and in a few hours, all was good again. It was an exciting day.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
