Blog changes

Thanks to everyone who followed Training Because I Can! over the last nine years. This blog started with Addison's Disease, hypothyroidism and a crazy idea of doing an Ironman distance triathlon. My life has changed and so has this blog. I am using this blog strictly for Addison's Support topics from here on out. I hope to continue providing people with hints for living life well with adrenal insufficiency.

More dog video

You asked for it, you got it, more dog video.
Scroll down a couple of posts for pictures.

Dog in the snow

Skip this and scroll down for pictures if you don't want to see the dog struggle through the snow. 20+ seconds.

Snow and an arm/back/shoulder workout

The view out the front window

Looking at the front of the house (the front window is to the left)

This picture was taken from the top of the snow pile on the north side of the driveway. I'm short and I'm eye level with the roof! I had to shovel down the pile so I could throw the driveway snow over it. We don't have a snowblower so it's all Woman Power and a shovel that clears the driveway.

Pictures: Blizzard, no school, lots of shoveling

The top of Teton Pass webcam
Current Teton Valley weather conditions. The webcam is useless today!!
The wind is howling right now!!

The snow pile on the left is about 5.5 feet high. The picture doesn't do the depth of the snow justice. It is at least 2.5 feet deep for the "80 feet of Hell!" AKA The Driveway.

The neighbor got his car securely jammed into the snow drift at the end of the driveway.

The calm before the storm. This is the last blue sky we'll see until tomorrow.

The wind picks up and the shoveling crew endures while I take pictures.

This is the neighbor's house from our driveway, about 100 feet away. Poor visibility! The shoveling crew packed it in and is waiting until the conditions are better. I'm sure we'll have to redo all the work that was already done.

Dolly loves to play in the snow! See the house in the distance? That's the same house that you can barely see 100 feet away in the picture above.
