Toto, toto!

You would not believe how windy its been here over the past day.  Gusts have been as fast as 60 mph!  Living in a wooden house on a hill, Thayer and I are pretty aware of the wind.  Richards cabin (directly across from ours) has had an enormous slab of snow sitting on its roof for a while now.  The wind combined with warmer temps caused it to slide off and break.
The warmer temps have led to an increase in critters in our cabin.  We're starting to see mice again, and there are spiders everywhere!  Here's a cute little weevil that I found crawling around our windowsill.
As you can probably see from the first too photos, the wind is bringing in a storm.  We're expecting a foot of snow (or more) over the next few days.  The snow was already blowing in over the mountains when I woke up.

GOOD GRIEF!! Well, I guess the winds are practice for heading to Tornado State.

Very impressive slab of snow.
Any sitings of Wood Rat yet?
love you
