Five more inches of snow

wall in snowA winter storm watch made yesterday a busy day. At the library lecture in the morning, we talked to the neighbors whom we had invited over for a visit this afternoon. Because of the forecast of snow, sleet and rain, we changed our plans to a visit yesterday evening. Our house needed cleaning and we had errands to run, so we hurried to the main library to return the movie screen, grabbed a burger in Woodstock, and bought a few groceries in Wal-Mart. (I was out of goat's milk and Wal-Mart is the only place in the valley that carries it.) Then we drove home and dove into housecleaning for a few hours. The visit with our friends was pleasant, although the house smelled slightly like floor cleaner, no doubt with whiffs of dogginess.

This morning we awoke to a winter wonderland. The snow is already melting from the trees; temperatures are in the 40's. I'm glad we don't need to go anywhere today; we can enjoy the view and wait for the snow plows to dig us out.
