Where's the Snow?

What do Snowplowers do when December arrives?  We stand and stare constantly at the sky, hoping, wishing and praying for snow so we can go to work.  So far, it's been a pretty quiet December and one of the latest on record for our first good snowfall.  What do we do while we impatiently bide our time???  Geocache of course.

Louie and I grabbed the caching bag and headed out to the woods to grab a couple of caches.  This first one was  placed as a 2000 milestone cache for a friend of ours....


There was a definite chill in the air when we set out, about 18 degrees with the wind chill.  I thought this tree fungus was interesting with the frost still on it....


While I was busy taking pictures, Louie was busy hiding behind the tree.  He thought it was hysterical that I couldn't find him.  We are so mature!


I really liked this cache - it was placed inside a real animal skull.....


We did quite a bit of bushwacking today.  Bushwacking is when you hike off trail and pretty much scramble over fallen trees, around logs, through vines that grab and hold you and try to trip you up and past burrs that somehow manage to get all over your clothes and stick in your hair.  It's really lots of fun.  Really....  LOL!

The last cache of the morning was the easiest one to get to and I dropped another TB that I picked up at Festivus....


We got 5 caches for the morning and we also had one DNF (did not find).  We're going to have to go back and try again because I hate to DNF.

In the meantime, could it start snowing???  Please????

  1. If you can't work, you may as well play! Looks like you are making good use of your down time, but I pray you get some snow soon. I bet you were very busy during that big storm last year! (or was it this year, just many months ago?)

  3. Yep, I'm waiting for more snow too. Our mountains are looking really bare, and I want to go skiing! Here's hoping for a big dump of the white stuff.

  4. Brrr!! My thoughts are if its going to be so cold and miserable the least the sky could do is dump a little snow for ya!

    Me, I can do without the snow. ;-) Loved it as a kid, but it's not as fun when your an adult actually trying to GO places!

  5. I've been thinking about you guys and no snow. If your interested, I could make room for you and Lou at the restaurant. We're short a good cook and a dishwasher, lol! Don't worry, once it starts it will snow every third day for three months or, so it seems.....I say LET IT SNOW BABY!!!!!
