White Out

Bea & I arrived up at the cabin ’bout two hours ago. "White out" might be a bit of an overstatement, but it’s really dumping. We’re at 8 inches and counting. And it’s cold. Surface temp is under 30 F and dropping. Luckily, it was only about 38 F inside, and now, two hours later, we’re all the way to 55. It’ll be cozy soon enough.

This is a nice change. Because of the warm weather patterns in December, we had pretty lousy weather for Christmas up here, and downright awful for the New Year. Rain and wind, non-stop, for days.

This snow is of a nice dry consistency, just how I like it, and it’s calm as it could possibly be. Not so much as a whisper of a breeze.

    "Rain and wind, non-stop, for days."

    Sounds like heaven. We're at something like 120 days straight without a drop. OK, technically there was a drop or two last week, enough that, literally, it put three drops within a typical sidewalk square. I counted – I went outside when word started going around the office that it was actually raining. Yup, it's that bad.

    Hi,Its, "leave a comment Monday", I read it on a blog. You have it nice. We have more snow that you will ever need and it was below zero when I got up this morning. You sure are lucky.
    Well Hi again.
