Chip Mate -- formerly the dinghy -- has become more of an igloo lost on the tundra.  (Jan. 29, 2011)

Yes, it's sitting well off the ground on plastic saw-horses. (See it here in early December before any snow.)

Another view of the roof snow wave on Barbara's porch roof..

A close-up of the snow wave.

Time to bring in more firewood -- but the new cart, hanging on the tree beyond the emptied racks where it used to be "out of the way," is buried in the growing mountain of snow.

So first I had to shovel out another path, to the tree to liberate the wood cart. Look at that poor C22, Chip Ahoy, parked behind the mountain and tree, alongside the house. Will it get out by spring?

Okay, back to hauling in another day's supply of firewood.

Barbara's side yard "beach" garden and birdbath, buried beneath a couple feet of snow.

The beach garden in high times, late last June. By comparison, today it's desolate.

It sure looks lonely out there in the middle of the tundra.

Not much bird bathing going on these days . . . or for many to come.
