Snow on Skyline Drive

Last weekend brought the coldest temperatures of the season to the Shenandoah Valley and surrounding mountains as rain and fog covered the area for five days. Sunday night's low of 25 degrees and heavy frost at the SWAC house finished off our garden but, thankfully, SWAC Husband had retrieved the green tomatoes the day before and wrapped them in newspaper to slowly ripen (which usually provides fresh tomatoes for Thanksgiving).

Meanwhile, the cold rain at lower levels provided a nice autumn snowfall high up on the Skyline Drive. Bob from The Journey spent Monday in Shenandoah National Park hiking and taking gorgeous photos! Check out fall leaves on the snow and Skyland in the snow plus views from Skyline Drive.

God's world is beautiful....

I made a green tomato cake. I found the recipe on the internet. It's a Paula Dean recipe and it turned out incredibly good, if you want to use some of those green tomatoes (you know the ones that will never ripen?)

Joy, I have never heard of a green tomato cake but -- hey! -- we eat potato bread and carrot cake so willing to give it a try! Want to email the recipe to And thank you! I'll share it on SWAC Girl. :)
