Love Hate

Living in Wisconsin is always a joy, except sometimes..  I have to say that for the most part, I love it here.  The people are wonderful and the state is stunningly beautiful!  It offers so much!  However, I do get a little tired of the LONG winters.  Two weeks ago, the temperatures were in the mid to upper 50’s, the birds were singing and the breeze felt amazing!    The house doors and windows could remain open for several hours in the early afternoons!  So what did I do?  I took the plow off my truck as there seemed to be no chance that it would be needed again until winter began (in late September where I live).   So of course we had a blizzard Wednesday night and all day Thursday.  The plow is back on the truck as there was no other way I would have made it out of my drive yesterday without it.  I was, however, able to take some time and take in some breath taking views of the property after the snow had almost settled….  I LOVE IT HERE!!!!!

Finally, I was able to capture this short video clip of the peacefulness on Echo Lake yesterday morning.
