What abundance!

There is such an abundance of wildlife here.  It really is amazing to see all of these animals thriving here.  It is a beautiful place but it is also a very severe lifestyle.  The winters are very tough and the summers are short.  Vance really appreciates them while they are here.

Yesterday, I knew it was supposed to rain so I stuck close to the cabin.  I saw the stormy looking clouds roll in over the mountains while I was snuggled safe here in my cabin reading.  About 2:00pm it rained hard for 10 minutes or so.  What a let down.  I read some more and then fell asleep.  I'm not used to rising at 6:30 and having sunlight until 9:30 or so.  I woke from my nap to the winds GUSTING and whistling and the trees blowing and the wind chimes ringing and ringing.  I wondered when the trees would fall or the cabin would lift off.  Just call me Dorothy.  After a while, the rain started and eventually the wind died down, but what a storm.  Later the rain came back in the form of a light drizzle which lasted most of the night.  If this keeps up the yard will be bright green by the end of the week.
