It's been snowing all night and day.
We stopped and bought chains for my truck this morning. The line of waiting people twisted around the store like a sleeping anaconda.
With chains on my truck tires making a comforting chug-a-chug-a-chug sound on the snow lined streets, we made a pit stop at the local grocery store to nab a few last stocking stuffers and groceries.
Every teller aisle was crammed with people loading up on supplies.
There is a strange sense of camaraderie that comes with such moments. Where normally people groused at long lines, they now stood patiently leaning on their filled grocery carts, texting on their phones or chatting with their companions.
Lord V and I spent the afternoon by the fireplace watching TV while the wind blew the falling snow in swirls around the house and across the river.
So wild. So beautiful. So cold.
I am thankful we have a warm house tonight.
