This first and very early winter storm in the Ozarks struck us hard and fast. Yes we knew it was coming, no I did not know I was needed at Moonmooring. Until the last minute. I had my suspicions but was hoping for the best.
My renter is in the process of moving so her whereabouts fluctuate. I found that the house would be empty and unheated for the impending storm. Wood heat the main source – propane wall heaters the backup – the pilots not lit and very difficult to do. Have you noticed me whining yet? I am. I did. I’m sure I will again. Time was running out. Off to Moonmooring I went to brave the storm and keep the home fires burning.
What I thought would be two or three days ended up being six full days. I had a wonderful time. The snow fall was beautiful and the solitude was healing.
Thirteen inches of ice and snow!
