It's A Good Thing The Sun Was Out All Day Long

We woke up to brisk wind and frigid temperatures.
The high today was about 28.

 I had a 10am meeting at the Town Hall and was home by 12:30.
 Gary attended a garlic growers seminar and I spent the afternoon in front of the fire
with my buddies.
 Even tho it was below freezing, the sun melted more
 of the snow.

 My new goal is to pick up all the sticks blown down during the wind storm.  At least I can see most of them now.

 Gary got back to the farm a little before 4 and was off to a board meeting at 6.
I did not have to make dinner.

 The sunset was gorgeous.
Night all.

A Big Melt....50 degrees

However, the temperature is going down to the teens tonight with a high of 26 tomorrow.
After that, things should start to improve.

 This afternoon an insurance adjuster is coming to check out the wind damage that we had.
 Phoebe and Little Wonder stuck with me all through morning chores and proceeded to get 
very muddy.

 It was so nice to have class today, after missing it the past two weeks.

 I am looking forward to getting back in my regular groove.
 We took it easy this afternoon.

 It felt so good to have sunshine and some "heat."

 I'd say that over 50% of our snow has disappeared.

 Paul, the insurance adjuster, arrived a little before 5 and checked everything out.  He sure knew his business when it came to roofing.
 Gary had seen Martha Stewart making a pizza in an iron frying pan, so I thought I would try it.
 Of course the dough was made by Carina!
And the sauce was made by me from scratch.
 I put a lot of onions/roasted red peppers/tomatoes in it.
 Topped it with cheese and baked it at 430 until the bottom of the crust was browning.
 It was delish.  You should try it.  Very crispy!
 At 6:30 I drove down to the village for a Town Board Workshop.

 Beautiful skies!

 Home at 9:30 and ready to crash.
Night all.
