Made a side trip while we were trying to slip south of interstates that were still closed due to deep and blowing snow.

So, last night winter heaved its carcass up and hit us with one last blast of snow.  Some parts of our area got 19 inches or more of snow.  We got about 15.  Needless to say, the roads are rather treacherous and schools were closed today.

Girlie Bear seems to have decided that sleeping in was for chumps, because she got out of bed and cut a path to our next door neighbor so that she could take him his meals today.  She would have made him a path to his garage as well, but he stopped her.  No way is that 89 year old man going to brave the frozen wastes today.

Here she is, pajamas and all.

Note to self – Pay attention while drilling pilot holes.  Also, when bending to the side, your perception of what is and what is not a straight line may become skewed.

Yeah, we’re a classy bunch, aren’t we?  It’s amazing what a difference an onion cut in half and a couple pieces of summer sausage can make.

Saw this up on the Wikipedia main page. 

United States Navy personnel engage in Special Patrol Insertion/Extraction (SPIE) training between a Sikorsky SH-60 SeahawkUSS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69). SPIE involves either a person or goods being lowered from or raised to a helicopter via a cable above terrain on which landing would be difficult.

Not shown is the the method used to keep the man at the end of the tether from clanging when he walked.
