Another snow squall with whiteout conditions hit Monday evening. When it began I was in Norway for a meeting. Riding home, down Route 118 the snow went from bad to near white-out to complete white-out. We could see nothing. Lisa was driving because I of course could see nothing because it was dark, but she did great and I managed not to have a complete melt down. I was not prepared for those conditions. Traffic moved at a snail's pace. No one was pacing, no one was in a hurry. One could see the road or be sure what side we were on. We could only follow in faint tracks from a previous vehicle. Thank you Lisa for steering us to Just Rite Acres. Shortly after I arrived home, the snow stopped.
I guess we might have a white Christmas after all. I will go out after I type this and check it out. I will put on my crampons just to be sure and see if the Tasha dog wants to walk.
Tonight, Monday, I hope the sky will clear enough to see the Lunar Eclipse. It is Solstice, also, the shortest day of the year. Winter has begun and it entered like a lion as winter should.
This Thursday, the 23rd, ACA will meet at the Waterford Library at 10 a.m. It is a step workbook meeting and they are working on the 4th step. FMI please call 739-9115.
Saturday of course is Christmas Day. Dave and I have it off because the Bethel Transfer Station is closed for Christmas. Hope all have a wonderful day. See you the following week.
I want to thank The Citizen for reprinting the Legend of Studie Cross. It was great to read it, again. Studie was an exceptional man. Taught us all a lot about possibilities and making lemonade when life hands us lemons.
Last Saturday, David and I actually went out at night. We went to hear Sammy Chapman play at Tuckers. He was great and that is a nice, mellow place to enjoy music.
That is all for this holiday week. Have a very Merry Christmas and please, drive carefully. These changing weather conditions are dangerous for us all.
