|The next morning Joe pulled out the washer and found the sticky pad.The mouse evidently got caught in it and chewed his way out at least 3 times. Two days later, we caught a mouse in a trap. This mouse was grey, the one I saw was black.|
|On November 4th,|
we had our first snow fall of about a 1/4 an inch.
|By November 6, the snow was gone and the sun was out again.|
|One of the last outside winterizing job was to pull out the hose that feed lake water to our front yard.|
|My doctor also did a in depth blood labs checking for deficiencies of vitamins, mineral, enzymes, and probiotics and more. I have been taking vitamins including C for years, yet I was in the high need for vitamin C, and borderline in others.|
|They put something in that produces a large orange dust storm.|
|Here is one down tree and roots that has new trees growing up from it.|
|the woods were so dense in places, you could not see or walk in the woods.|
|As seen here.|
|This is the only pile Joe made when he cut branches out of a tree when we had to get our bus backed into our drive the first year, which made 9 piles.|
|First pile into chips.|
|Looks much better.|
|and keeps getting better,|
|There were many cedar trees leaning on the front row of trees that we were afraid would come down on our house at night while asleep.|
|Like these trees,|
|and these trees.|
|These picture shows how bad these trees were leaning facing our bedroom.|
|What a mess. So glad it's all gone now.|
|There is a spring in the woods under this large down tree. You can see the crocks under the tree that use to be used by the very first owners who used it as drinking water 68 years ago.|
|Our neighbors house is coming along.|
|On November 9th,|
we got our second snow. A tad more then the first snow fall.
|On the November 10, we dropped to a chilling 13 degrees.|
|It was so cold this morning, there was fog above the lake.|
|The lake was warmer than the the air.|
|The fog started to rise up, as|
|it warmed up, and the fog lifted.|
Our 3rd snow fall 2 days later.
|Joe started to complain daily about the cold and snow.|
|I guess it's almost time to head down the road again.|
Our 4th day of snow. All our snowfalls were of about enough to cover the ground and melted a few days later.
Five days before we left, we had a warm up to 63 degrees. We went from 13 degrees to 63 degrees in 2 weeks.
|I also did some chinking where I found gaping holes under the window in the guest room. I can't tell if it is sealed in the space, so I sealed it anyway with new chinking.|
|Last picture of our neighbors house going up, it will be finished when we see it next.|
|The 3rd day we encounter 3 slow downs, or complete stops which added to 30 minutes in all. This made our final drive at 9 hours. I took this picture of the field of cotton as we drove into Gulf Shores/Foley out skirts.|
|The sun was setting as we arrived to our winter home town for the next 3 months.|
