kinda like winter

Posted on October 22nd, 2015 by mountain girl  |  6 Comments »







We woke up to a white wonderland this morning, after a tiny first-of-the-season snow yesterday.  David, Cash, and I had to go to town today via the hair-raising turns of Golden Gate Canyon, un-plowed.  Soon after, we found out the roads to home closed behind us due to accidents, and the power had gone out at the school so it was under lockdown.  It always makes you feel great to know your kids are stuck freezing and starving in the dark, haha.  We hung out at the bookstore, which was actually pretty fun and relaxing, then headed home.  The school power came back after only a couple of hours, and we all made it safely home without much freezing or starvation.  Best of all, the locals got their beloved “moisture”–including David, haha–I never thought that sun-lover would be crying for snow.  He’s officially a local. 🙂

    Crying for snow, lol. You forgot to mention the Barnes and Noble manager mistaking me for a book thief! ha “Security, please rewind the surveillance tape 30 minutes in Zone 4, please rewind the surveillance tape 30 minutes in Zone 4”

    Rewind? Tape? what? are we in the 80s? /:O)

    Haha, I forgot about the book thief in the cowboy hat. With the suspicious-looking diaper bag, no less. 🙂

    That looks beautiful! We’re still in the throws of autumn here in NY and I can’t even imagine snow at this point. Looks like the kids are enjoying it.
