October snow was deep today.

Cosette would love to play in the snow but we left her winter coat at Aunt Janets a few weeks ago. We stay inside with the fire going drinking hot chocolate and watching movies.

We still had green tomatos on the plants in the garden.

The winter storm hit us with vengence. Here are a few pictures of our new adventure. Emma had a book club to go to and took the van only to get around the corner and get stuck. Robert ran down to help her and after getting it unstuck in short order by spinning a cooking the van was facing down hill. Robert proceeded to drive down the hill only to discover he did not have control of the direction the van would drive. He was headed for a parked car on the side of the road when he chose to point the wheels in the direction of the owners front yard. Fortunately he missed the car, fire hydrant, mail box, and van in the driveway and landed right in the middle of the yard. Instead of stopping he continued ot drive through the yard and out the neighbors drive way. (Robert called them and confessed) He eventually got Emma to the book club with white knuckles and ghost white hair. He thought it would be a piece of cake to get back home and in the garage. He was sorely mistaken as it took him three tries to get it up the hill the last one was driving like a banchee all over the road only to get it stuck in the drive way (twice). Our tires are at the end of their warranty and are therefore BALD. We planned to get new tires soon but the snow hit us before we could blink.

Such a hilarious story! We got the snow too. How can I get her coat to you? Soon.

I can't believe it is snowing! At first I thought it was an old post that somehow got out of order. That is crazy.
