We have several inches of snow and it is still falling. Many times we are spared even in the face of heavy predictions. But this time we are in the midst of the snowstorm pounding the South.

So how much snow will we get? That's anybody's guess. But if the temperatures remain below freezing this snow will stay on the roads for a while. Like most mountain folk we are prepared. Plenty of food for man, dog, and bird. Books to read and projects to knit. Movies to watch and friends to visit. We're hoping to get less rather than more, but we will have to take what we get.
