Winter and the 4th of July

Some people say there are two seasons up here: Winter and the 4th of July. That's not quite true. But, once Independence Day rolls around, it is time to think seriously about keeping warm when the snow flies.

Today Kate and I split wood. This photo is her with a rented log splitter. It felt good, like we were the smart squirrel holing away nuts for the upcoming long winter.

At MY house, once the 4rth of July rolls around, it's time to think seriously about escaping the 104-degree heat wave that surely will arrive within the next few weeks!.
