We did have some excitement Tuesday afternoon. There was an accident right in front of the house and we had a totaled car end up in our driveway. Someone attempting to make a left turn across traffic was rear ended by someone else who wasn't paying attention and didn't slow down. Fortunately, no one was injured. But what's really scary is that it happened just minutes before I12 got home on the bus. It terrifies me to think of someone slamming into the back of one of the school busses (which happened near here last evening). Anyway, I go down to see if anyone is injured or if they need any help- and it turns out that the guy who was hit was one of the guys from the orchard that I had met at the workshop the other weekend. It seems that he lives with his mother just down the road that takes off east right across from our driveway. Talk about coincidence. He said that he had wondered about who had bought the property but didn't feel like it was appropriate to stop by. I told him that he didn't need to have an accident to stop by to see who lived here!
Then, there is the weather. We have been significantly below normal for this time of year. This morning it was -5 F! At the end of February! Brrr!! I am SO ready for winter to be over.
