2017 6th Saturday Recap
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
~ Think Spring; this is not how it presently looks
The twists and turns of the 2016-2017 winter continue to challenge local residents. News of flooding has replaced the tragic loss of so many buildings collapsing under the snow. Twenty miles north the Weiser River is over its banks. It has displaced families. On Hwy 95 the Weiser River Bridge is under review and closed. The melt has only begun.
We drove east on I-84 after lunch yesterday. The snow was greatly diminished as we climbed up the hill just east of Ontario and the Idaho-Oregon border. We spotted a green plant that is breaking through in an open muddy area in our front parking area. No doubt this is a weed, but it is welcome. Two ground squirrels playing around on top of the snow another surprise. We are yet to hear of such a sighting in Malheur County, OR. Sunshine and warmer temperatures are welcome but at a price.

On a very personal note
All our time and effort has gone into the current pups and trying to battle the extreme winter conditions. Since we moved into this old farmhouse, we have been trying top keep our remodel momentum going. The reality of winter has made our progress grind to a standstill. We are back thinking about the utility bath. At least we hope to a utility sink installed soon.
My health struggle of late has left Cliff to deal with some of the matters I formerly managed. It makes for an extra full plate. I am doing better. There is still a desire to reach a full recovery. I cough more at night. This bothers my sleep, but also Cliff. Every day I feel improvement. For this, I am ever so thankful.
Thanks to You
There is no way we could ever thank you enough for your love and support. We are in need of a few stories to get through the December blogging. Several of you have promised; however, we understand how busy you might be–nevertheless if you can send along something we would greatly appreciate it. Without you, this would be impossible.
