Snow? Why today?

Standard

This afternoon, since it’s a holiday, a group of us are going up to the ski mountain to take a ride in a horse-drawn sleigh.  The road up the hill is treacherous if it’s snowy, and full of hairpin curves. Not to worry though, as it’s been pretty much dry as a bone this winter. We’ve had the latest opening ever of the local ski resort, and the road has been dry pretty much the whole winter. Which is bad for a whole host of reasons, but makes for better driving, to be sure.

Until today. Today it is snowing like mad. Big, lovely flakes fluttering down. I’d be thrilled – if it wasn’t for my plans.  The snow isn’t really sticking here in the valley, but it’s most likely a different story up the hill.

IF we make it up there safe, I bet it will be a really pretty ride!

Then hopefully we make it back home safe, as well!

  1. Sounds like a great time, minus the driving uphill stuff. We too JUST got 3″ of snow…it’s been a weird winter but welcome none the less. Hardly any snow here and the temps way above normal. That being said there were two terrible accidents in our area yesterday due to road conditions. Killed a local young lady of 16 yrs and critically injured her passenger. The other accident killed 4 college room mates on their way back to school. Glad you made it there and back ok Anne. Blessings to you!
