The Long Wait

January 17, 2020

Two days ago I left the house at 9am.  Between then and returning at noon, our pipes had frozen.  It was -23C (-9.5F).  On the coldest day so far in 2020–with pipes freezing all across Kamloops, B. C.–the search for an available plumber was on.  Four tries later, I snagged one just finishing up in our neighbourhood, and an hour-and-a-half –and $165– later, we heard that lovely sound of water bursting out of multiple taps.

Seeing our rescuing plumber to the door, I saw we’d gotten some mail.  It was our first-of-many, colourful Spring Seed Catalogs.

    So beautiful and evocative. No snow here in SF Bay Area and though I appreciate the weather here and don’t miss trying to get around in snowy weather, I do miss seeing the quiet beauty you’ve so perfectly captured here.

  8. Your photo combines with your last sentence to make it seem the crows are waiting for plants to come up.
