Snowing to beat the band.
Snow started last night and is still going strong. Big, heavy , wet flakes. The woods are covered , even the tree limbs. This isn't so bad though, the temperature is just below freezing. As long as we don't have any of that below zero stuff or single digits it isn't so hard to get by. So far the most interesting thing to happen is that two black cows have escaped from their barn and are wandering around on a county road. There have been the normal cases of poor judgement and the wreckers are making lots of money towing people out of ditches. The Sheriff's deputies are quite exasperated with it all. There was a chimney fire last night and lots of hooting and hollering about that. The fire and rescue people here know nothing about radio discipline, but I guess it doesn't do any harm and it's interesting to listen to them over the scanner.
Nothing much else to tell. I have to go out in a bit and feed the animals, make sure they have water. I'm staying inside otherwise, doing a little reading.
