A Small Snow

The most snow we've had yet this winter



Snowy rural road

We had a small snow last night. A thin layer of ice lay under the snow in some areas, and the roads were quite slick. Classes in the public schools were cancelled.

Isaac got up and drove to town for his classes at the Community College, and to his surprise (mine, too!), classes there were cancelled also. Freezing rain and more snow is predicted for tonight, so I imagine he will be checking his college e-mail for cancellations before he heads out tomorrow.

Currently, it's raining and the temperature is 33°. In the wee hours of the morning, it's expected that temps will drop below freezing and then we'll get the frozen precipitation that they're predicting.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
