It snowed last night, which was delightful. Not too much on the ground, maybe an inch and a half, but it was a very pretty snow. And while it’s clearly absurd that Clark’s school was closed, and Tabby’s music class was cancelled, it was good news for us. Paul was home in the morning and we decided to go sledding at “Mr. Long’s.” This would be the hill that is sort of behind and to the side of our house (via the road it’s all the way down the road and around the corner.) We’ve seen other people sledding there after big snows and decided to finally give it a try. The snowy view was spectacular.
And the sledding was super fun.
But best of all was exploring the abanded barn ruins. They’ve always been there, but who would explore them in the summer, hidden as they are behind pricker bushes and poison ivy and no doubt snakes lay in wait. But in snow? Oh, it was wonderfully spooky and creepy and abandoned. We did come across a skull–but fortunately it was an animal’s.
For more pics I actually put up a set on Flickr, which you can see here http://www.flickr.com/photos/31379892@N08/sets/72157623344365284/
