After moving, being snowed in, digging ourselves out in below zero weather with shovels to go buy a snow blower, and being without heat for a few weeks we had a few days of sunshine that made the difficulties seem SO far away. That is, until the main water pipe ruptured at a previous repair (under a couple inches of asphalt and about 3 or more feet of dirt). Colin dug it out to find the leak and then the next snowstorm blew in. Sigh. Today I am waiting for the plumber that did the original repair to show up. No water since Tuesday but with this view from my studio it all still feels worth it.
