What Is This? Springter!

It seems March is as bad as February and January were. More snow yesterday afternoon and through the night. We woke up to snow covering everything once again. I was so looking forward to seeing grass! And the raised beds were poking their faces out from under the snow. This morning all I saw was white snow.

This little bridge, called High Bridge, is near our house. It lives up to its name, because it is up pretty high. A one lane bridge over a creek. It is over Ludlow Creek which flows from Lake Ludlow and is one of the cleanest lakes and creeks in our area.

Our road was not plowed due to the mud underneath. The highway department is trying to keep big trucks, especially the logging trucks, from driving on it right now. So I think they didn't want to damage it any further.

This is a little church not far from our house. It is historical and has been here since the 1800's. A lot of people in the area attend this church.

New York is anything but flat. As you can see, lots of hills and mountains in the distance. I love it. And I guess that is why I am still here, suffering through the cold winters.

Another one lane bridge we have to drive across quite often. It is over the Chenango River which is up pretty high today. Spring time flooding is common here due to the rivers in our area. I hope it doesn't flood this year, even though it does not affect us. But friends and family live in those areas.

Have a good homesteading day!
