It may be white outside, but it’s colorful inside.
We got our first vaccine shot last week. Our local site is a drive through with plenty of space and manned by the National Guard. It went smoothly, was painless, and we were certainly glad to put a check next to that box.
Getting the second shot scheduled was not quite as painless, but I won’t bore you with the online struggles. The state learned a valuable lesson from a senior uprising. Was I one of those making noise of not being able to make the second appointment sooner than April? What do you think? Starting today, people will get their second shot date with the first one. That’s a better move for all concerned.
The snow has been falling and falling. Spring may be 39 days away, but no one has reminded Mother Nature of that. One side benefit is I really do think we’ve made up for our drought last year.
We took a ride just a little north on Friday to see if there were any bobhouses out on Lake Winnepesaukee. Sure enough there were, but a blizzard broke out while we were there, and the photos are not great.
I always find it interesting that there are people and houses out on the ice when you can actually see open water like in the first photo on the left. You also may be able to see what looks like the snow having been plowed off the ice, and that is exactly what it is because as soon as they get a solid 14″ of ice, a runway will open for light planes to land.
Do they occasionally fall through the ice? Sure. This past weekend three snowmobiles with six people went in the water at Lake Winnepesaukee. The people got out on their own or were pulled to safety by others. Ages ranged from 5 years to 45. No further comment needed. 🙂
Hope you had a good week – enjoyed the last football game, had a great book to read, good food to eat, and maybe most of all got an appointment for the vaccine. 🙂
