All Decked Out

Published January 26, 2013 by inanortherntown

I’ve started receiving garden catalogues in my mailbox. Spring must be just around the corner, yes? Surely the mad men of advertising wouldn’t mess with my sanity?

It was decided that today was the day to shovel the deck – we’ve received about 10 inches of snow over the past week – which really added to the already huge amount just sitting there. I was going to document the hard work in progress. Instead I made some coffee and just watched.


Behold! The Deck:

All of the promotional videos for “life is better here” – are filmed with lush green lawns and people outside without their parkas. I almost can’t believe that this snow will be gone before next winter!

Huh, just had a thought – maybe those videos aren’t filmed here at all? Maybe it’s all a ruse? Surely the mad men of advertising wouldn’t mess with my sanity?

  • I think you’ll be amazed how quick it can change….. and remember a day doesn’t make a week, week doesn’t make a month, and a month doesn’t make a year. By next year at this time you’ll share how much of the four seasons there are!
