Yesterday morning we woke up with a dusting of
snow up here in the hills. It always amazes me that we
have snow up here and down below us in the hollow
there is none. That was the way it was yesterday
morning on my way into town. We do not have the
mountains as in other states which collect snow before
their valley's do, but I guess our hills here are high enough
that they get the same effect.
We always collect more snow
in the winter here and it was difficult when working in town
eleven miles away and trying to explain the amount of
snow we had at home. We get that 'look' and an "Oh,Yeah?"
So you would risk it all to make it into work no matter
how deep the snow for fear of not being believed if you
had to call off for the day. Thank God my dad had a
four-wheel drive truck. Then the ones that lived in town
who called off would get the "She made it in, so why can't
you" speech and I got the dagger looks from the workers
who tried to call in. ;-) A no win situation some days.
The sun came out and that covering of snow was
just a memory but we had snow flurries all day.
This morning we had our second snow covering.
There was just about an inch coating on everything.
I did not travel off of the hill so do not know how
much they had in the valley but they had to at
least got a dusting as cold as it was outside.
So like a little kid I had to go and play in the snow for awhile.
My poor hardy mum's can finally call it quits and now go to
sleep for the Winter.
These Brambles looked so pretty with their colorful
leaves with the snow clinging to them.
Most of the pines in the Hocking Hills Parks area
around my house are Hemlock's and they always
look so beautiful with a coating of snow.
The berries on these brier's are now standing out
for the birds to find.
The field across the road that went through so many
leaf changes this Fall is now painted white this morning.
