Dashing Through the Snow

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?

I'm still in denial about it being winter-ish around here. It hasn't been so far, just rainy, and I am FINE with that.

Looks like a definite Winter wonderland. Better enjoyed from inside, with a cup of something warm in hand. :D
