Trip to Virginia

Over the weekend, Fred and I made a quick trip to Virginia to visit Lois and Rick.  They moved to Virginia a couple of years ago or so, and are now living in the house Rick built.  Very cool house in a woodsy setting, with wood stoves and a built-in fish pond.  Lois and I were best friends all through junior high and high school, and Lo, Rick, and I had a good time reminiscing about high school friends -- Fred, poor guy, was sort of left out that!

Snow, Snow, Snow

Left work early this afternoon to avoid traffic complications due to snow. They are predicting four to six inches here -- more than enough for drivers not used to driving in snow.
Tonight I took a picture of the snow falling.  I thought it was cool (so to speak) that the flash made the snowflakes visible.
And I really DIDN'T want anybody out driving tonight. Nevertheless...

But David is safe. Let's hope the car doesn't slide down the slope before we can get it towed back home.

Cabin Fever at Lake Murray Contra

Cabin Fever played at the Lake Murray Contra Dance on Saturday, Feb. 6. They have a really beautiful dance hall specially built for contra dancing. The turnout was a little light, due to the weather, but a good time was had by all. We were glad Woody could join us, since he is still recovering from his recent triple-bypass surgery.
