021106snow.jpgAwoke to snow falling at a slow but steady pace this morning, covering the ground and some forecasts promise 3-5 inches before ending sometime tonight.

The snow adds a peaceful touch to the hills that spread out in front of our home (right). At some point, we might get up the nerve to attempt a sled ride down the 35-degree slope that is our front yard although previous occupants of Chateau Thompson tell us that their attempts usually ended in the creek at the bottom. I’ve already got one messed-up knee. Why tempt fate?

At some point today I will venture out to capture the snow with stills and video. Right now, through, I’m going to kick back with a cup of coffee in front of the fireplace and watch it snow…and snow…and snow. Maybe watch some of the Olympics on the tube. Maybe sleep.
