Penguins have to be near the top of the cutest animals list, but I must admit that all that background ice didn't do much to make me forget what's outside. lol

We're getting only about 6 inches of snow—a mere bagatelle—but it's going to be cold with high winds around 50 miles an hour. Today, Athena and I really battened down the hatches. We put the cover over the grill and used some bungee cords to make sure it doesn't blow off. We managed to wrap the 6 foot deck storage container in a tarp and, with great effort, tucked the edges under so that too won't blow off. I filled the bird feeders and set out a couple of suet blocks. Then we pulled our cars up to the very end of the drive away from the street so the guys who do our plowing can clean it out properly.

Our hands and faces were frozen by the time we finished and came back into our nice warm home. I made some hot chocolate and we settled down on our respective recliners. At the same moment, we both started saying "I'm getting too old for this" and we burst into laughter.

I want to visit this town. It has no roads, and it truly does look straight out of a fairy tale. http://landscape-photo-graphy.com/post/ ... t-out-of-a
