FOR ANDREA

First Snowfall of the Year!!

Snowed all morning. Very treacherous for this Southern Belle! Drove very slow in second gear! Probably pissed a lot of people off!

I tried to turn a corner, started fishtailing so bad I just held on hoping the guy in the car coming at me was seeing me in a bit of trouble.

No damage.  Whew.  

See what Andrea is missing?

Nice picture. How pretty.

I love the snow. The first snow of the season is always exciting.

They are calling for flurries tonite in my neck of the woods.
I hope I'm not disappointed;0)

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

We have several inches of that It took me 40 minutes to go less than 5 miles to get more dog treats. It was also rush hour, of course. Why do we still call it rush hour? It lasts at least 3 hours here. Maybe it's like dialing the phone when now we push buttons?

Just remember that while you may be able to go fast, you need to be able to stop. That is what causes most of the accidents, I think. People forget that they will need to stop at some point.

What a great picture!  You have snow and we have had unseasonably warm weather.  The constant sunshine is getting to me.  I want some chilly nights.  Pennie

I'm already wishing it was spring!  lol  We haven't had any snow in my valley yet this year, but I'm sure it's just around the corner.  It's been pretty darn cold here in Boise.

Glad I'm in NC. After 10 years here in the south, I never miss the snow--but then I grew up in the snowbelt. I'll take a 60 degree winter's sunny winter's day anytime.

They have predicted snow here and I am hoping it arrives, just a dusting to kick me into the holiday spirit!

We got a little snow last night too. I wonder if there will be any left to photograph by the time I leave the house today. LOL

I just spent about 45 minutes updating myself with your Journal. You have exhausted me! I am awed with all you do and all you express. I do enjoy your Journal. I just wish I could get here each day and get the news while its new. My Regards, Bill.

Ohmigosh! It's Anthony Wayne and his horse (never knew the name of his horse).

I used to drive a Ford Escape through the snow, which handles better than a small car. And you know what? There would STILL be some asshole driver riding my bumper. Doesn't matter how fast you go. So ... just go at your own pace, Mary. Always. If it pisses off the person behind, too freaking bad. Move to the side of the road a little and let them pass. Or not. :-)

I don't miss the snow at all. Nope. Don't. But everything else? Yes.

    What a great photo! You'll get used to the snow. Picking up speed won't be so bad, it's just a matter of keeping enough space between you and the next driver because stopping takes a little more space. But then again, it might not snow again all winter. This will be your longest winter in the North. Next year won't seem so bad.
