Christmas In The Country, Continued
Yesterday it was sixty eight degrees, and I was outside washing windows wearing nothing but a short sleeved tee shirt.
That didn’t come out right. I did have jeans and boots on. BUT, I wasn’t wearing a coat. That’s pretty darn weird for December in Colorado.
Here is what it looks like today.
Well, so much for my nice clean windows.
This storm is a doozie-we are expecting two feet of snow, with forty mph winds.
That, folks, is a true… blue… blizzard.
Back to yesterday, here is Wranglers putting a few adjustments on the Christmas lights.
Yes, that’s a tractor.
And, yes, that’s Wranglers in the bucket with his Christmas hanger light thingy.
I jumped off the tractor to snap a few photos, so you could see how
rednecks we hang Christmas lights in the country.
When it was time for this little operation, Wranglers reminds me, “Now, when I am in the bucket, you raise it up. DON’T FORGET…raising the lever up LOWERS the bucket, and pushing the lever down RAISES the bucket.”
Ya, ya. I got it…up is down, and down is up.
Do you guys know how hard it is to think backwards like that?? I have operated this tractor many times, and inevitably, I do the wrong thing first.
This time was no exception.
wow! your area must be part of that big SW snowstorm they started talking about yesterday. should hit the panhandle areas of Tx and Ok but leave my area of NE Tx alone. we've got 60 degrees here but very blustery and overcast today!
I thought about my far-away blogging friends when I saw the forecast. Yikes! I cannot imagine 2 feet of snow….
I think it's cool that Wranglers is wearing a Santa hat!
Merry Christmas to you & yours!
Oh my gosh–what a storm!!! And I sure think that your husband's Santa hat looks awesome on him!! That would be an amazing cover for a tractor magazine!!!
That is not the way we hang our lights here in suburban Sydney! I'm glad you got that on camera or I'd never have believed it. I'd love to see a photo of the lights on at night-time in your winter-wonderland.
Stay warm and eat soup!! 🙂
TexWisGirl-Hey, our little community was mentioned on the National News! This storm has been our claim to fame 🙂
Cindy and Dianna-He makes a darn goodlooking Santa doesn't he 🙂
Hotly Spiced-So far, my night pictures of the lights have been a total flop. I will keep trying, because it really does look like a winter wonderland!!
I don't like it much when the weather changes so rapidly. I prefer to ease into it. Good thing you got your lights up when you did! Cool Santa you have there. I'm the same way with directions. Don't even ask me in the car, "Which way do I turn?" That thinking fast on the spur of the moment yields the wrong answer too many times.
