As a child growing up in South Carolina, I longed for snowy days. They were so few and far between that to get a real snow was a treat, a delight, a joyous occasion to be celebrated. I've not lost that sense of wonderment when snow starts to fall. Its just an amazing sight to me.
After a relatively mild winter here at the Inn this year, we have finally had a marvelous snow today - that's right, March 1st and we're just getting our first true snow of the winter.
What an incredibly fun day we've had. After our last guest checked out this morning, we declared a snow day at the Inn and went out to play. At Carl & Carol's house (our assistant Innkeepers), there is a great hill for tobogganing. It's an exhilarating feeling to fly down a hill on a sled. With Mike pulling or riding us back up the hill on the four-wheeler, what fun! After thawing out with hot chocolate and chocolate chip cookies, we made plans for a snow dinner to celebrate. Tonight, several of our friends all gathered at Carl & Carol's for an impromptu dinner with maple snow for dessert.
All in all, I'm a very happy girl tonight!
Happy Snow Days to You,
