Tour around the Copper Country
So yeah, I've been slacking on the blog. It's just so good to be home and hang with the family, but presently all are away so I'll write a post instead of wiring the bathroom (yes, I know you just gave me the meter, Mr. Bud, but I feel the need to procrastinate). Anyhow, I've whipped out my camera a few times while driving around the area. The photo above was taken just outside the next town. The folks here ripped a door off of their junk car and made it into a dog house. Yooper practicality.This is a photo of Mr. Bud from across the canal (if you look real hard you can see him in his rocking chair, drinking coffee, even though he said he was going to work when I left). I took this after leaving his place, driving home during the beginning of our last blizzard. I swear I was NOT taking pictures while driving in a blizzard. I was stopped in that parking lot across from the B&B!!
Finally, I noticed that the snow banks are still pretty impressive in front of my house-a little over 5 ft high in mid-April. Woo hoo! You really gotta love winter to live in the Copper Country. By the way, you can ignore all the dates on my pictures. I'm one of those people who just can't be bothered to set the date on my camera every time I change the batteries and keep forgetting to turn off the damn date thingy.
