Much milder, snow melting and roads are clearing up

Where are we today ? 
clic a pic to enlarge it
     Much milder overnight just below freezing this morning, The snow and ice is melting 43F (6C), so its turning slushy and wet. The snow plow went down the road  about 9 am so I took the snow and ice off the car and eventually  was able to make my out of the driveway to it and into New Hamburg for a few more food supplies. Roads are at least driveable today.
car completely covered in ice 
      Once I got out of the driveway after a few runs to get through the snow I followed the snowplow down to Walker road. Then into New Hamburg.
the roads are cleaning up nicely
snow plow doing a great job
lots of snow piles from the plows
got parked again
slushie and wet
lots of twigs an small branches down
        A nice tasty lunch, (love this bean soup) did some reading for a while then for 2 pm into Tavistock to a funeral home visitation for the father of a nice couple we have known for years., Suzie much longer.
       Just as we finished lunch Dennis came back from the farm with the tractor to clear the driveway, before it freezes again.
in no time at all he was done, nice to have good equipment
Thanks Dennis !
that is better now soon it will all melt
and dry up
         When we got to the funeral home chatted with our friend Jeff (the funeral director) and he reminded me that I had met this man over 20 years ago at an Optimist club dinner function our 2 clubs had gotten together and we exchanged ugly ties! We had a blast. Wow such a small world and while waiting in line for an hour we of course chatted with at least another dozen or so couples that we know and of not knowing they all read our blog as well, so they knew we were back in the area and what we have been doing.
      Back home by 3:30 relaxed a bit and read a bit more, then time to whip up supper. Tonight gonna do a ham fried rice with a bunch of veggies. No recipe for stir fries, what ever you have on hand. I just fried up some celery, carrots, fresh mushrooms, onions, broccoli, zucchini, chopped garlic, green onions, lots of leftover ham, in sesame seed oil, 2 eggs, added some ground flax seed, low sodium soya sauce and sesame seeds, in a few minutes it was all stir fried together for a very tasty meal.
all done in in one pan, quick and easy
oh my always so very tasty and sure hit the spot
the other side of our coach is well protected from the weather
driveway plowed and snow melting quickly
        Not gonna be so cold tonight and just a bit more rain maybe clean up this mess we are having and get to enjoy some warmer spring weather, In a week or 2.
         Want to thank y'all for stopping on by for a peek and enjoying this wonderful? Canadian spring weather with us today.

  4. Love having ham in the freezer, once a year I get a big one. Never thought of using it in a stir fry, however...hmmm. Glad things are melting a bit, but it still looks really cold.

    1. So much you can do with leftover ham, and it is always so tasty. Should melt pretty quickly now we hope.

  6. Sorry for the loss of your friend's father.
    The stir looks like ours, I just toss in whatever veggies I have, usually chicken as well and now that we are back in Canada I can get bean sprouts too. Always good and hits the spot.
    Soon the soupy mess outside will be gone. Looking line sunshine in Ontario for a while now and I can hardly wait for it to catch up with us. I'm so excited. LOL.
    Keep your feet dry on those walkabouts!!!

  8. Keeping a positive outlook in miserable weather and enjoying good food always helps. In addition you have the family close by to have nice visits and to keep you company.
