A November Dusting


It's a rare thing, indeed, for us to experience a November dusting of snow. In our area, when the weathermen get chattering about snow it instantly becomes the "Artic Blast" of that calendar year. Yesterday people were out at the market stocking up on groceries and children were eagerly imagining the possibility of being snowed in by mountains of the glorious white stuff.

It turned out to be not quite the blizzard my children had hoped for, but it did allow for a delayed start time at school (three cheers for icy roads), a breakfast of pumpkin scones, and an episode of our beloved Leave It to Beaver.

I'm sure this winter visit it won't stay for long, but it is lovely while it lasts. Happy Thanksgiving, my friends ...
