First Snow

Yesterday was Friday the 13th when we experienced the first snow of 2012. We retired folks still keep up on whether the county schools are in session. (I know- it is an old habit.) It is a beautiful thing at this time in our lives that we have the option of staying in bed, pulling the warm covers up, and experiencing the snow.

The birds and squirrels were certainly enjoying the black sunflower seeds and suet.

We had a minimal snow fall - the real problem was wind and extremely cold temperatures. The counties bordering Gilmer were closed yesterday. Temperatures barely rose above the low 20's. Wind chills were in the single digits. The roads were extremely icy.

Judy made chili yesterday. It was a great complement to this cold weather.
