Snow Sunday

Hey! It snowed! A lot!

It’s lovely snow–light, drifting, easy to shovel (although the sheer volume is daunting). Aside from packing into the vent pipe on the roof, necessitating a climb up there to open it up again, it caused absolutely no trouble at Chez Mason-Black. There was a travel ban for the state for twenty-four hours or so, but not being someone drawn to driving around in snowstorms, I didn’t find that a hardship. Our kindhearted neighbor came with his tractor yesterday after the snow let up and dug out our driveway, so all in all, we led a rather charmed storm existence.

This morning it’s 5 degrees out, and the sun is shining brightly, and I’m thinking about joining the cats in a cozy spot in the sun and working on Crossroads. I have most of it plotted out in my head. I’m sadly lacking a lot of travel experience though, and that’s hanging me up a bit. What I need is a grant to travel across the U.S. by car. What I think I’ll get are a lot more books out of the library. I may need to storm ahead and fill in some details in edits. I have a head full of characters that really need to come out.


  1. I think when it snows you have a duty to curl up with the cats for a while at least. πŸ™‚ We’ve had some snow here in the UK over the last few weeks, thankfully not on the same scale you seem to have had it. Happy writing. πŸ™‚

    • It’s been a winter of extremes–no snow followed by two to three feet of snow in a single storm; subzero temperatures followed by highs in the forties. I’d be happy for a touch of moderation in all things weather, at least for a stretch.

      Much as I’d rather stay inside and warm, I’m off to snowshoe instead. Why must my time for curling on the couch always come to an end? πŸ™‚

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. “Storming ahead” seems like a propitious usage, considering…. πŸ™‚ Enjoy the cat-napping and the planning, the warmth and the welcome quiet of winter come at last.
