First Snow of Almost Winter~
Cottage in Winter White
How wonderful it is to wake to a world covered in white! The first snow of the season is always special - just because it's the first. Annika was thrilled at the snow - already on the run as I came out the door!
Nika on the fly!
Of course it was a day that I had errands to run, so I warmed up the Bronco for the trek to Arlington. The roads were covered in snow, no sanding out our way - but as I went further north - some sand had been put down & that turned the snow on the roads to slush. I decided to err on the side of caution & set the Bronco to 4-wheel drive.
I always love dropping down the hill into Arlington - from my direction. It always looks like a postcard perfect small town from fifty-years ago. A town that's served as our hometown for many years. I had a vest that I'd bought from Nordstrom & never worn. This year - it's in fashion - but was way too big. I stopped in at Sunshine Cleaners, to ask if they would have time to do the alternations while I was in town? The answer? Yes! That's a small town & small town service! An hour later - my nails were done & I picked up the vest - ready to wear!
Heading home, the roads were actually worse, some melting & a combination of sleet & rain - making more slush out of the snow. While I do love snow, especially powder snow - I'll be happy to see this one melt away!
