First Snow

Last night we got our first little bit of snow. I woke up this morning and the windows were frosted and the house was chilled. I didn't want to step out of my bedroom into the bathroom as that meant leaving the warmth of the carpeted floor for the cold, chilling, tile floor. The snow fall amounted to nothing really but it got the anticipation level up there. The only bad thing about it is that we can no longer put off putting the winter tires on the car. We'll have to swallow the bill and find the cash somewhere. Merry Christmas I guess :(

This time of year is great because I think people start to anticipate winter and that gets even strangers talking. People become more social I think this time of year. Christmas may have a part to play in that as well.

I hope to get out soon on a good day hike or maybe even do an overnighter somewhere. I have to admit my life has been extremely busy and my time is committed to a great number of things, few of which allow me to get outside. Thank God for my wife and son as they are my biggest reason to play lately and nothing will take their place on the priority list.

I hope you are getting out there and wandering.
