Caretaker Bill sending some fun photos of the house and grounds at Hawthorne after this first big snow. Oh my! That is lots of snow. We head back on Christmas morning and fingers crossed there is snow during our stay. Mister Sive cross county skis right out the back door. The snow makes it all so magical. If you are reading this and you live where you are knee deep in snow, enjoy the heck out of it, and stay safe & warm. Snow in Seattle is pretty for a day, then the reality of trying to get around the city and all of our famous hills sets in. The city comes to a halt which becomes no fun at all. We just aren’t equipped for it on a large scale. So I keep my fingers crossed for no snow here, then lots of it when we are back in the Hudson Valley. Wherever you are, I hope you are grand.
