After another snow storm here, it seems a good time to reblog this. Thanks to Marilyn Armstrong for running it last Sunday on Serendipity.
As far as Ralph was concerned this was the worst winter ever. There were years with more snow, that’s for sure. There were years that brought colder days. There was never a winter that brought one snow after another followed by one arctic blast after another. Memory had no recollection of this many days below zero. There were several days pipes were frozen at Ralph’s house, leaving him without water to the kitchen. After that, every sub-zero day meant water would be left running to prevent from freezing. Towels and throw rugs were tossed against the bottoms of exterior doors to prevent drafts. Humidifiers were used to make the house more comfortable and the gas bill… Well, Ralph did not want to think about that.
