A Christmas snow

Even in the mountains, snow on Christmas Day is a treat (at least for Southerners not traveling anywhere). It started after daybreak, falling all day long. We may have over 10-12 inches by tomorrow morning.

Quite beautiful to look at, but nice to be snug and warm.

We haven't had internet access for a couple of days (and won't for another week or two) so have been appreciating the disconnection from the virtual world that travel brings. The silent and snowy streets this morning made it seem like we were somewhere unfamiliar, too, as did Christmas Eve visits to historic downtown churches normally closed to visitors.

It's a tradition for us to remember our various Christmas adventures, and this will be one of those - a white Christmas being home with Mocha in the mountains.

I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
