Traveling South for Winter

We haven’t had much snow in D.C. yet.  Temperatures have reached the mid to upper 50’s at least one day each week and have flirted with 60 degrees several days in January and February.  Mornings could be described as frigid, and at least two weekends have brought skiffs of snow, enough to cover the grass and the roads, but not enough to write home about. We did drive through one white-out a weekend ago, which felt like being stuck in a concrete snow globe.

Approximately 5 inches of snow

To resolve the lack of snow, we traveled south to my hometown in southwest Virginia, where not only did we receive eight inches of the white fluff, but also the fame of being the town on The Weather Channel.  We spent the long holiday weekend, curled up by the wood stove, watching episodes of our favorite TV shows (Gilmore Girls and Top Gear), and venturing out into the fields – first for fishing on the sunny Saturday and later for sledding on the snowy Sunday.
