It finally snowed up here on the mountain! Not as much as we want or need, but it is stunningly beautiful anyway. It was 10 degrees when I walked the dogs this morning. I had definitely waited for the sun to rise before heading out. It was 0 degrees when I got up. Brrrrr. Very chilly indeed. But it was warm and dry inside my house with the wood heater blazing throughout the night. Finn certainly appreciated that.
I thought you all would like to experience our first snow, so I took these photos for you.
First, as the storm came in, it was cold and windy and gray… beautiful all the same. I love the snow and watched it falling from my house:
Then I joined Kim in the trailer to watch a movie and enjoy the storm. It’s so cool to be in that little bubble of a space, a storm raging all around, and to be snug and warm and dry:
Then the storm broke and the sun came out. Beautiful!:
Kim and I had worked earlier in the day, the wind whipping all around, covering most of my wood for the winter. I’m buying one more tarp today:
My Kelee LOVES the snow. He even digs troughs in it to roll around in:
One of my favorite things is the sun shining across fields of snow, especially fresh snow. Here’s why:
And a new one for me… snow on an Airstream:
Kim and I had espresso and Italian Christmas cake. Then came the close of another lovely day:
What do I need with presents?
Love to you all,
