Winter is here folks, and there is no denying it after the storm that just hit us. It seems like the colder weather moves in earlier and earlier every year, but it might be that I’m just feeling it more as I get older and older every year. How about that?
With the roads being snow packed and icy, it’s always a joy to get in the car and head out to places near and far. . . Not. Despite the wonderful Portland public transportation system, most of us cling to our cars like a child to a pacifier. With my recent driveway resurfacing, I thought the long, narrow entrance to my little cabin would be easier to navigate once the snow fell. In fact, it is, but it’s still a pain in the backside having to plow and shovel.
