White Out

I'm largely settled in, in the new gallery. I love it...love the energy...it feels warm and elegant. I'd like to think I'm done, though there are still about 30 boxes of miscellanea upstairs awaiting my attention. I was going to do that today but was told to "go home" by the powers that be and many locals who watch out for me. The weather outside is frightful...it took 40 minutes to make the 15 minute drive home! White out. Which is funny because all the weather know it alls say "light snow possible." In 4 hours Angel Fire village got 4 or more inches (at least, that's what I trudged through to get to my car. And it was blowing at 40 mph all the way up highways 434 and 64. So much for going to the Rotary Club's Wine Tasting Benefit tonight...I'll forego that jaunt and pour myself a glass of my favorite budget red, Concha Y Toro Cabernet/Merlot blend.

I looked at the Resorts Snow total. No way. It said "0" inches in the past 24 hours. I know that there are about 50 micro-climates in 12 miles in this valley, but come on..really? If it was 4 or 5 inches around my car in the village...surely there's more new powder on those slopes!

Anyway..the wind is still sending the flakes flying against the screen doors, turning them from black to white checked images reminiscent of a greeting card. Speaking of which..I haven't got there yet. Sorry friends...maybe you'll get a New Year's card from us!

In the meantime, I think I'll light a fire. Sounds toasty. Stay warm!
