Deja Vu all over again?

We just came through the "Ice Storm to Remember". 

Thank God that no one & no buildings were damaged, (just a downed section of fencing).

 We now have lots of clean-up & the driveway's are covered with 1" of solid ice. The day of the storm, the temps were hovering at just above freezing, then as the sleet / rain began to cease, the temps started dropping and we are now in the mid teens. BURRRRRRRRRR!

Some of the aftermath is quite beautiful!

Limbs encapsulated by water.

Icicle's galore!

Tess saw a chance to "explore"

Heavy limbs, but no damage as yet.

A limb & a Cedar tree block the camps driveway!

Here is the newest skating rink!

The "escape pod" is inaccessible at the moment.

We were in another "Ice Storm" in North Dakota, April 2011. 
They seem to follow us around.

Our packing continues,

Merry Christmas Everyone!!

This Snow Will Remain

Hello everyone. As we wind closer to Christmas, Holly & I are packing. Yes, packing the house to exit Canada and return to USA! Our attempt to renew our Work Permits has been refused and as of October 15th we have been instructed to exit the country. Many attempts to resolve this issue were made, but eventually we had to set a date and begin making plans to move.

We have gotten a bit of snow in the last week, hence the title for this post. 
This snow will remain, (too cold and no warm temps in sight), but we will be leaving!

Some camp winter pix's.

Tess saying goodbye to all her friends, Eh!

The squirrels are not going to miss Tess.

Our house, from the backyard!

188 is warm & cozy!

Inside isn't so cozy. 
We are packing boxes and putting them under the tree for U-Haul Clause to pick up!

The art studio will be packed secure & ready for Holly to start her new career!

Always time for a winter day nap!

Thankfully we have help lined up to load the truck!

We will post after the dust settles and are unpacking. As of this date & time we have no housing lined up, no jobs, no work lined up.
Holly wants to unwind & paint for a few weeks, Pete may just go Quail hunting to relax.

"Bonjour" Canada, That's all for now!
