Yesterday was one of those busy but laid-back days when we took our time and did things we wanted to do, not had to do. Breakfast, shopping, a drive to find a tree and mistletoe. The drive was the best part of the day.
It has snowed, rained or otherwise precipitated every day but one in December. To me that makes a perfect December, but I know many people don't share my love of snow. Some days are small flurries, like yesterday morning, some have been gullywashing rains, and there's also been sleet, freezing rain...and snow. Our biggest snows have been about 5 inches; most are 2 inches or less, enough to make everything pretty but not too much trouble.
Here are a few photos of where we went on our drive:
Ah, this beautiful West Virginia ridgeland!
Far below, you can see just barely, some smoke drifting from the center of this photo. There was a house trailer almost completely burned out when we passed there. I don't know if the trailer was burned intentionally or not, but when we passed it there were still flames inside and no one was around. Very odd.
