I’m having a productive and busy writing day, but I thought I’d entertain you with some photos of our recent snowstorm. We got about 14 inches of powdery, fluffy, beautiful snow.
I know, you Easterners got much more! But if you’re thinking we’ve got it easy, I’ll bet you don’t have to plow your own roads, like we do. My husband’s been out day after day, opening up the roads around “The Loop” so our neighbors can get out.
Of course, there’s not much point in getting out, since you can’t go anywhere. The road to Wyoming, which is plowed by the county, is impassable for the most part, unless you’re a little crazy and love driving in snow. The road to Colorado is somewhat better, but has sharp switchbacks that make me uneasy in slippery winter conditions. So unless the neighbors want to drive around and around our dirt-road Loop, I highly recommend staying home and reading–or writing–a good book by the fire, with snuggly assistance from the cat, or maybe a dog or two.
That’s it for today, folks – I hope that wherever you are, you’re staying warm and cozy with the ones you love!
