Yesterday's dawn cast a rosy glow on the first snow of the season. Cold and clear and beautiful, it was nevertheless a day I had dreaded. Would I be able to get down the long, icy driveway in winter?
Past the pines at the top of the drive, taking it nice and slow...
A quick stop to admire the view...
One more curve to the left, and then it's a straight shot through to the main road. Where the real problems begin.
The driveway was a piece of cake, but it seems the snowplows don't consider our little back-road to be a high priority.
It's a good thing I allowed an extra 20 minutes to get to work, because I needed every one of them. I had to fly low once I hit the highway to make up the time. And this is just a couple of inches of the white stuff. Some years they measure it in feet around here.
I wonder where I could get a dogsled?
