Garden Tuesday: The View from Up High

This is the view from two of my dearly beloved's 3 hospital rooms.  Both were on the top floor.

This first one shows Scranton beyond the roof of the parking garage.  See the line of cars going away from you on the left of the picture?  Almost to the end of the line is a little red car, with my bigger blue winter beater sticking out from behind it.  And there it stayed for 5 days.

 Some of the houses and buildings beyond the top of the parking garage, in early morning sun, while my beloved was still asleep.  I didn't sleep much.  It was better that he did.
 At night, looking out at the city, the lights were very pretty.  My car is there at the right edge of the picture.
 See?  There it was, all alone, as the snow began to fly.  It was the only car up there for like 2 days.  The maintenance staff plowed around it, but it was torture climbing through the foot deep snowbank left 18" all around it.  Still, they didn't bury it, and for that I'm grateful.
 Three days later, post-ICU, from a different room.  I had finally left, gone home and changed, and did NOT park on the roof again.  At least the car was clean after the next snowstorm.

Cities are always prettier after snowstorms, aren't they?

Happy Tuesday, everyone!  Things are slowly improving around here, so it truly is a Happy Tuesday!

You are such a loving and dedicated wife!

Your car did look lonely on the roof. You are right, everything looks better after a fresh snowfall.

Oh my goodness Marjie. We're behind here. What a terrifying experience for you all! We are so glad everything has gone so well and your husband has had his surgery. Are you both home now? Take care and we have you in our thoughts. Hope the kids are ok too! No worries and LOVE, Carol (and Stella and Rory)

it sure got wintry looking but I like how the ground and air are so clean after a good snow.

This is the second time today that I've been here. Each time Marion has come by to show me another test Minion, lol...Anyway, would you believe I have never been to Scranton for a visit? I've driven through it but never stopped. It sure does look "purty" under a blanket of snow especially in the evening. I must make it my business to actually visit this year:)

I'm so glad to hear things are progressing Marjie. It is difficult to stay positive with this weather we've been having but perhaps that is all the more reason to take little steps so by Spring all heck can break loose:) Sending you and yours sunshine that I stashed away from this Summer:) Thank you so much for sharing, Marjie...
