Tom has been gardening in the garage.
Tom has a collection of bonsai trees that he created many years ago. They take care that he has not found the time, or made the time, to give them lately. He has the time now.
He has brought his trees, a few at a time, out of winter storage, to prune and shape and re-wire them.
He has a kerosene heater that warms the garage up to almost 60 degrees, good for working on projects.
Sometimes he has company. Charlie can be quite adamant about joining us, so of course I fixed a box for him. All cats like boxes, even Snow Cats. And being warm and dry isn't bad either. We do have to shove him out the door and insist that he go home sometimes, though. Charlie is really Mewtini, and he is not our cat.
There is another project in progress on the workbench that I have been working on. That will soon be ready for publication.
The garage is also where I have my stationary bike. I like to exercise where it's cool, so the garage is just right, and I can read my Kindle as I pedal.
Weather update: the temperature is up to 37, and after about 20 hours of rain, it's clearing up. The rain has soaked the snow, so we now have deep slush everywhere.
It's a mess. Shrubs will hopefully bounce back when they are freed from the weight.
A large branch has come down out of one of our tall fir trees, and several more are broken and hung up in the tree. Clean up, when it's possible, will probably involve a tree service to help.
But for now, we'll stay busy, and sane, indoors, or in the garage.
