Snowy Saturday

junco birds in snowIt started snowing before dawn today and continued all day. We had heard the forecast of 1 to 3 inches by this afternoon but I was hoping it would hold off because there was a memorial service in Alexandria that I planned to attend. But the snow was heavy and our mountain roads were slippery so we didn't want to be gone so long. It would have been difficult driving back up here this afternoon.

We did drive to the post office this morning - there is no home delivery here. We picked up the mail and drove the short distance to Orkney Springs to enjoy the winter scenery. On the way up the ridge to get home our Montero slipped a little bit but fortunately we did not slide near edge of the road, which has a steep drop-off.

We spent the rest of the day at home except for walking the dogs.
