Last winter was milder than many a Louisiana winter,
and the lack of cold this year had me wondering if it was ever going to snow.
My Louisiana snowfalls were few and far between so
I was as anxious to experience a Virginia snowfall
as a kid waiting for Christmas.
The snow on Thursday began with huge wet flakes
Just before sunset, it began to come down so thickly
that you could barely see past our woods line
We didn't last long outside!
Most of my watching was done from the kitchen window while I cooked dinner.
I'm not a morning person, but the next morning it was worth getting up early enough
to see the pink sunrise hitting the mountains.
We're living in Paradise.... no doubt about it.
Atta and I went for an early morning walk along our road.
These are two of the mountains we can see from the end of the driveway.
The first time that we came to look at the land,
I fell in love with little gravel road that we now live on.
It just felt "right."
Crisp and clear and I could see for miles...
We could have walked longer,
but my paint brushes were calling and I had work to do.
Even though I was down in the basement painting most of the day,
there was plenty of time to stare out the windows
at the beautiful countryside!
I love this place!
