You have to start somewhere!
Trying to free the glass windows.
Windows freed from pressure of snow.
Can you see our car in the road?   Tired, but homeward bound.
Again this year...we suspected we would find some snow,
so we drove up to "take a look" January, 2009
After Harry had cut a walkway to the cabin.
We parked at neighbor's driveway.
