We made it home this past Thursday for home time.  With as mild as the weather has been lately, we really didn't expect to see much snow when we arrived at home.  Boy, were we surprised.  It looked like a winter wonderland.
We had a bit of surprise when Craig went to turn the water on.  Seems our heat strip was malfunctioning and with the minus degree weather we had the previous week the water had frozen.   Craig had to drive into town to purchase a new one and within about 10 minutes the water was flowing again.
During our first night, there was an additional showering of snow, just enough to cover our Jeep.  With all this snow around us, we figured we'd BBQ some New York steak that Tyson so generously donated to us before our last home time, when a shipper refused a case because the box was torn.  We love those kind of rejects right before home time when our cooler is empty!
Craig managed to do the lazy man BBQ'ing from his recliner in the living room. We made sure to cook extra to take back out with us on the truck.  Looking at the weather forecast for the next 10 days or so, it still appears that we'll have milder than normal snowfall and temperatures.  We'll take that as we look forward to another couple of days at home in a mere 14 days.

So are you still waiting for the steaks? Or did Craig fall asleep with his beer?
