We sent everyone home a noon. Snow started almost immediately after.

We left at 3:00 for the 15 minute commute home. Took two hours. And we called it lucky.

A high stack of split firewood will be consumed this weekend along with coffees, popcorn and a few books I got for Christmas. And the wife winked her "let's snuggle" look.

It's been a while since I've seen that.

Hot Dayum.

Gotta find my vitamins and SUPER beet drink.

It took me half the day to recover from working last night.
Oh, I'm gonna be a Grandmother again.

Good Morning ! Gonna be running saws and making a few brush piles today . We’ve had a couple of ice storms ,and it’s brought down a lot of trees . Today’s weather is 22-32 clouds clearing and no wind ,And ,the ground is frozen . So I can actually get into where I have to cut,and drag without being in a bog and creating more work .

Pretty much the same thing as yesterday and tomorrow.

Junior Olympics are going on in Denver. I'm home. But I have a vested interest in 6 of the students that are there. So I am sitting and watching the "LIVE FEED" on my computer.

Mateo, one of my Marian kids competed yesterday in CADET MEN'S SABER. It was his first exposure to a national event. Going in I knew he would get slaughtered. He did. No surprise. His whole family went out with high hopes, I tried to lower expectations.

Lexi and Chrissi both compete today in JUNIOR WOMEN'S SABER. Chrissi is there for the fun of it, she is unrated and ranked near the bottom of the field. Lexi is an E rated varsity college fencer and I trained her from day 1. She is not good enough to move up very high but will do better than Chrissi. Both have their families out there and both realistic in their hopes and both will have fun. Both have been there before so they know what it will be like.

Dom competes in CADET MEN'S EPEE, while Lebyron & Kevin compete in JUNIOR MEN'S SABER tomorrow. Dom is actually pretty good, has a C rating, but this is a whole never level of competition for him. Both Kevin & Lebyron are E rated. Both are there for the competition but neither will do very well. I think this is Kevin's 3rd Junior Olympics game. Dom and Lebyron will experience their first.

The competition at this level of an event is so far above our high school conference that when our kids go into the Junior Olympics they are wide eyed and when they come out they feel bloodied and battered. Kevin, Chrissi and Lexi have all been to the JO's before. They understand what they are up against. They are realistic. They will have fun. Dom will see a new world and may actually do better than any of the others.

This is actually the perfect competition for Dasha to attend ... except it is only open to citizens of the USA. She would do very well here. Maybe a medal. Maybe not. But she would do well.

Other than watching the live feed, I'm trying to do some things around the house during the breaks in the action.
