A Curse or a Blessing?
We just can't decide. Fresh new snow is always a gorgeous thing to behold: magical, mystical, quiet, refreshing. But what does it become after a couple of days when you are tired of cold feet, wet dog tracks on the floor, and grey, grey skies?
This morning we awoke to another layer of snow, this time covering the trees as well as the ground. Our last snow... just one week ago... was very dry and those ten inches had begun melting with a nice warm sunny day on Wednesday, only to be topped off with another 5 or 6 inches today.
On Wednesday, John and I trudged up the hill to collect some oak to be split for firewood. Flexible Flyers are not just for sledding!
So we've got some splitting to do, but it won't be today...
Tomorrow there is a 60% chance of more snow showers. It's so unusual for North Carolina, and I'm not sure I like this new side of winter 'round here!
