A Snowy Walk

It snowed here a couple of days ago and the snow is still here! It has been several years since we’ve had snow in October, but when we have, it is usually gone the next day. This time, it just might stay until spring. 😦 I decided that I could survive a walk in the… Continue reading A Snowy Walk
