December 1, 2019: It snowed.
Above is the garden put to sleep until next spring.
The photo above was used in this year's Christmas letter. There is a driveway beneath the snow. Note the power poles at the road and in the pine tree?
The photo above better shows the reason why we are looking forward to the power company putting in underground lines in 2020. .... The power line is currently routed through the pine tree. This property is the last house on the line. Not such a good place to be when the wind blows, rain comes, snow falls, reindeer fly... It is time for it to go underground, or we set up a back up system.
