Early Snow

It snowed all week in Berwick and followed me down through Reading last night. Driving in snow though the countryside when it is very dark is like driving into a starfield but it is only interesting and novel for about 10 minutes. It doesn't stick to the windscreen if you keep moving - just a galaxy of stars flying into your face. After a while you have to fight against getting hypnotized, which is a nerve-wracking way to spend three hours in a car. Have to admit it is a lot better than the 5 hours I spent driving home in the fog last week, only able to see the white line on the side of the road for hours - no idea where I was. Found my way to the house by following the white mailboxes - couldn't even see the roadbed.
Snow again this morning. Very unusual to have a pre-Thanksgiving snowstorm here and it is very pretty and I am happy to be looking at it from my cozy home office.
Making my chocolate mocha cupcakes tonight for the big Harold Naomi birthday party tomorrow. First time the whole family (except ABJ) has been together for a long time.
