Stanley Snow Day
Stuck as we were in Alexandria, we didn't get to visit Hawksbill Cabin over the weekend. We asked neighbor Dan if he could take a look at the place to make sure everything was okay - and asked him to feed Momcat.
Dan and Sally were out on their cross country skis, and made their way over pretty easily. I'm jealous of that - Mary and I have snowshoes but not skis. Maybe we'll break down and get some.
I was worried that in our little hollow, which is just on the start of the upslope to the Blue Ridge, we'd get a huge dumping of snow. But the pictures Dan and Sally sent back don't look so bad - maybe two feet up on the roof there. In 2010, Snowmaggedon (click on the label for more info about that one) we had quite a bit more snow up on the roof, and hired the roofer to come over and shovel for us.
It's really quite a pretty setting. Hopefully there'll be some snow left next time I get out, I'd like to go sledding in the front yard!
