2017 3rd Saturday Recap


Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon

Last Saturday, I started off saying that January has roared like a lion. Nothing much changed as we danced a jig with the first month of 2017. Here are a few snapshots we took yesterday from the Jeep as we took a tour. A couple of these photos show people working to remove snow from a roof or awning. Most are of a collapsed building. It is hard to see under the snow.

We have some good news. All our buildings are still standing. We are very thankful. That doesn’t mean we are not concerned. Everyone is at risk and snow removal is in full swing. Our church has called for a crew to scoop three hours today. Yesterday, they worked on it as well. The old adage of better safe than sorry is true. Not everyone has a crew, can afford to hire one or can find a safe way to access the roof.

Late afternoon yesterday, we drove into Ontario and took a tour. It was kind of a loop-de-loup to try to spot some of the downed buildings. I tried to capture photos of some of the damage as well as the snow accumulation. Being tough Eastern Oregonians we don’t want to complain; however, the atypical snow accumulation is making life difficult.

This Week on the Blog

Here are the week’s posts if you wish you may review or visit them today!  A lot of folks were saying this week was grim. We felt like we might have added to the grayness, but loss and grieving is a part of being loved by the Weimaraner. 

Sunday— January 15 — Stop

Monday — January 16 — Coffee Anyone

Tuesday — January 17 — To The Desert

Wednesday —January 18 — Saying Goodbye

Thursday  —January 19 — Grieving

Friday  — January 20  — Football

On a very personal note

We are trying to stay safe. So many people have fallen on the ice. Cliff is spending every day in a battle against the snow. We cannot clear our carport roof. We sincerely hope it doesn’t go down. There is 4′ of snow on it and it is very wet and heavy.

My battle with the Bronchitis continues but is ever so slightly better. We have been careful to limit my exposure to the flu. It seems I am improving and we don’t need a terrible setback. Everyone in the Treasure Valley is pretty much fighting to make it through Mr. Winter’s mess. Next, is the projected standing water and flooding, but we can hope that it all comes off in a sensible manner.
