2: SNOWBOUND? | Snow arrived at Leatherwood before we did!
3: What to do? Ellen and Andrew arrived first and quickly found neither of their cars could make it up the hill to Crosswinds. After Papa and Nana arrived, a good Samaritan offered a trip to take the four of us to the driveway leading to the house...along with what little we gratefully crammed into his (mini) SUV. . . . | Then a brisk, snowy walk to the house. . | Thanks, Bob!!
4: Hurray for the Rolfs!!! They left Mendota in the snow and brought the truck! | Five shuttles later we were all at Crosswinds, on the side of the mountain, safe and sound.... | l2 more people, suitcases, food galore, presents and a CHRISTMAS TREE.
5: The snow continued through the day as we all enjoyed checking out the house, the beautiful view (covered in white), and Ellen's terrific spaghetti dinner. | As we delighted in the warmth of the fire, the grandchildren started Christmas carols ... they knew them all. What a precious time on Christmas Day!
6: After the night of 100 mph winds howling around a very secure house, we were delighted with the quiet. Did somebody say 'quiet'? A good warm breakfast, and we were ready for Sunday morning. Papa lead in God's word. Erik followed with a story for the children and actually found a carol we had not sung the night before.
7: Sunday dinner was the Vermont ham and the roasted duck. Yum! What a feast! Then more busy, fun days continued!!
