January 31--Sharon came for dinner of pan fried chicken, hash brown patties and sweet baby peas. Afterwards, while relaxing with some nicely chilled Viognier, we talked over Sharon's house sitting duties while we are gone. She has taken care of the girls before, in 2008, which was also an incredibly snowy winter in the Northeast. For the first time we had our roof shoveled that year. We went to Montana that year also but took the Canadian route to Sault Ste Marie and then the upper peninsula of Michigan. We are going Stateside this year and traversing Kansas and Nebraska in an effort to stay as far south of lake effect as possible. Not sure that is going to work the way this winter has been so far but we'll take it slow and hole up if needs be. Hopefully, the weather will settle down a bit with the lengthening days and we'll have clear roads!
