Snowstorms, neighbors, and snowboarding

SWAC Daughter snowboards in the yard.

This and that on a snowy winter afternoon....

Snow is still softly falling in the white winter landscape as darkness approaches. We've gotten about 8 inches so far, a pleasant surprise after the weatherman had predicted only 3-6". Talked with a friend in Roanoke earlier and they had gotten 10" as it still came down.

SWAC Daughter is outside snowboarding on the ski run she made down the hill and into the woods where she has a mogel jump.

Meanwhile, the next-door neighbor drove over on his tractor and cleared our driveway, then headed to his barn to clear a path. What would we do without neighbors?

The kids made chocolate chip cookies on the woodstove in black iron skillets so we've got our dessert. It's winter in the Shenandoah Valley....
