Time to hunker down a bit

"Missed it by that much," as Agent Maxwell Smart used to say. I had set aside tomorrow and Saturday to go over to Wilderstead and (hopefully) finish leveling the site for my instant tractor shed, which I hoped to get up before the snow flew, overwhelming the ability to work. Well, I may get another chance to dig, but for now, I don't see getting anything done over yonder. At least, not tomorrow.

So, I'll have to step back and take a different run at tomorrow. Maybe I can get over yonder on Saturday. Maybe I just catch up on my sleep. I dunno. I know one thing, though, I'll miss taking Sassafras for a walk in the snow.
