And so the snow begins

As snows go, we’ve had a lot worst than Saturday’s 5-6-inch dusting around Chateau Thompson.  I didn’t venture too far out to shoot the winter views, given my earlier stupidity but I did manage a capture a few views for the season’s first blanket of white.

Kevin Myatt, the self-proclaimed “weather geek” at The Roanoke Times who seems to know a hell of a lot more about the weather than all those fancy “meteorologists” on the tube, says we’re in for cold temps and gusty winds over the next few days instead of more snow.

We trust Kevin’s forecasts here. He’s the only one we do.

  1. The smart thing to do is to learn to love the snow. If there’s no need to run to the stores or wherever you feel ‘necessary’ then stay home. Enjoy the various birds at the feeders, possibly deer at the hay bales if you engage in such feeding activities or go out trudging about your land studying the animal tracks etc. The freshly fallen snow has a quieting effect relative to road noise etc. All is hushed, all is well no?

    For those of you still engaged in the daily commute, think twice before traveling under hazardous conditions. If you get in a fender bender the deductible will cost you anywhere from $100-$500 dollars depending on what level you’ve chosen for such. Your days pay minus taxes possibly won’t cover the deductible. So it’s best to stay home, stay in the crib with mamma, play with the kids or whatever suits your fancy and call in that you’re simply snowed in. : )
