It was a green and gentle winter…until Friday the 13th. That’s when the first storm blew in and our driveway became impassable. Someday we’ll look back on this past weekend and laugh, but not quite yet. There was a stuck car, a stuck tractor, tow trucks, another stuck car, and some very kindhearted neighbors. Then the car got stuck a third time. Did I mention the broken mirror, broken plow, and broken bumper? I won’t soon forget the mammoth snow drift that became Anthony’s nemesis, nor the damages it caused. Last night, another batch of winter weather arrived. The winds that howled were almost unbelievable. I could actually see the windows moving. We hunkered down and thankfully woke up to a calm and beautiful snowfall this morning. I managed to snap this shot in between the two storms. How I love the vibrancy and warmth of red rose hips in the snow.
