Snow Hearts

This picture was taken after one of our snowfalls last year. We had quite a bit of wind at that time, which sculpted these snow hearts on our back deck. Since we are without our camera for a week, I’m commemorating our first snowfall of the season with this fun pic.

Currently it’s about 38°F (Is that about 4°C?) with lovely sunlight breaking through the clouds, so the snow is rapidly melting on our hill. I know the children are hoping, though, that the sky will cloud over and that more – MUCH more – snow will fall tonight.

A Quick Post

The internet is down at home. Once our youngest son gets home from school, I’ll have him take a look at it to see if we can get it up and running again.

In the mean time, I’m on my lunch break here at the middle school, so want to get at least a little post in to fulfil NaBloPoMo requirements to post EVERY DAY for the month of November. (I joined a bit after the first of the month, so may be disqualified already, but I’m doing what I can.) 🙂

Last night we had our first snow! So beautiful, and it did remain overnight, but, to the children’s disappointment, it wasn’t sufficient to necessitate a snow day. My husband took the camera with him so I have no pictures to post. So sorry.

This morning I overcame my natural antipathy to all things mechanical in order to read the Suzuki Grand Vitara owner’s manual regarding changing the vehicle over to four wheel drive. This was a pleasingly simple operation. I was thankful for four wheel drive on our long driveway and our steep hill, but beyond that it wasn’t necessary. On the way home this afternoon, I won’t need it either. The surrounding foothills still look as if powdered sugar has been sifted down upon them, but the roads are melty.

My break is about over. I’ll hope to do a longer post once I’m home, if we can get the internet connection back.
