The stair ways to heaven is a journey that only you can take.There are many obstacles in the way on the journey.How we handle these may be part of how our journey will go.None of us know how or where or when. WE don't even know IF!But for me, I just go with my Faith and do  the best I can!

Here in Minnesota we see several home and  garden shows every year.These are great as they give ideas and people who can do the work.Some of these shows are large events and others are just small local setups.No matter.They will all have great information for the area you live.Check them out and be ready for spring

It is the cam before the next storm, which is due on Wednesday.Not all the big, 4-5 inches is predicted.Not so bad but for those who can't get around it is major.Many older people and those with health issues have a hard timeremoving the snow from driveways and sidewalks.Be a stellar citizen and help these people out!  These guys need the help|!

WE are seeing record snow for February.It is the 4th snowiest on record with only a few inches to be number one,In some ways I like to break records, but part of me says this is enough.Walking bare land is very difficult as the snow is above the knees. So, I will just take what we get!

My wife and I stopped by Gooseberry Falls in northern Minnesota.The falls look frozen but you could hear the water under the ice.Very pretty and also a bit dangerous.Beside the slipping on the ice the ice could break and you could fall in.Yet we still adventure out

Well, you need to be careful of what you ask for.We needed some snow for insulating the ground.So in the last week we have had 2 good amounts of snow.The forecast is for 2-3 storms that will drop another 12-16 inches if we get the direct hit they are talking about, So, yes, we must be careful  of what we ask for!

It is cold, sorta, in Minnesota.So we need to make our own fun.Ice and snow sculpting is part of almost all winter festivals.Sometimes the sculptures are small and at times they are large and intricate.At any point, they are fun to see and only around for a short time.I wish the guy would close the door

Here we go.  /another round of snow on it's way.It will be one of the largest snowfalls for this year,although 12 inch snowfalls is not unusual.The stores have been busy with people stocking up on the essentials.Milk, Bread, water, BEER!It won't be a storm to paralyze but a good trial run for something worse.

Well, I am hearing all kinds of stories because of the cold weather.They are the same as every year.We humans have very short memories.WE many times forget the weather from a day or two ago.So this aimed at dog owners...   I am assuming that this is very true!

Well with the cold many of my friends are heading south for a get away.One couple has never left town in 25 years.For me, I am happy right here.Yes it is cold.Yes I am working hard to keep warm. But you know what...I feel really good about every aspect of my life in this sometimes brutal area.But, we don't have so much over crowding  either!

The weather is going back to mild.And the buyers are starting to stir again.Above temps for the weekend.Several clients wanting to see homes and a RARE open house. And then if  I can, I will sneak in some work around the home before the next cold snap.Plus, a few HONEY DO! items I need to get done. Looks like the weekend is full.  Still dreaming of spring flowers.

Surviving the severe cold was not hard.1st we put 30 gals of water in 5 gal. pails for non-drinking water.We had 5 gal of drinking water plus some individual bottles.Plenty of easy to make food.Extra propane tanks (2)I heat with wood or gas.  Enough wood to last the winter and enough gas for 3 weeks.Generator.Kept in a warm shop and tested every month.The outside boiler is set to be plugged in so that the pumps circulatehot water to the house.I have 2 200 ft extension cords and 2 100 ft ones.I can plug in the freezers and refrigerators if needed. Making sure everything is ready to use is key.It does not happen over night, but start with the simple things
