Winter Wonderland

And the snow came.

Late Tuesday afternoon. Tuesday night. And continuing slowly to drift on down, most of the day Wednesday. Up here high atop Wheatland Ridge, I'd say we got a good two or three inches. First snowfall of the season.

And I'm very glad my Jeep has four-wheel drive. Full-time all-surface four-wheel drive. I drove into town yesterday morning, and the county road was snow-covered and slippery. Cars have been going in ditches around here. Less than a mile from my place, somebody went in the ditch yesterday afternoon.

Oddly enough, down in the valley, where the temperatures are a predictable four degrees warmer than up here on the ridge, the roads are fine.

Up here on the ridge, the roads are rotten. TGF4WD.

You poor Minesotans...You should be here ibn Arizona where it is a nice comfy 80 degreees. Why do you think we moved here....that's is so comfy big coats, no mittens, no hats, no scrafs and no big boots that cost a fortune. Just been catching up on what is going on back there. May a great Thanksgiving.....Geneva Renk
