Come on now, really? Nothing says winter blues more than icy precipitation when you least expect it. This past Friday I woke to see a mix of half snow/half rain falling horizontally at a fierce rate. Fortunately it wasn’t cold enough to stick around (who the hell wants to shovel a driveway in May?) but further up the mountain, reports of nearly a foot of snow made gossip headlines in the chestnut forest. This hasn’t happened in years! On Saturday we drove up to witness the snow for ourselves and the dogs were thrilled beyond barks. Merry Christmas everybody! Summer is supposedly just around the corner.
