Leaving Goshen

by Cellobella on Wednesday, January 2, 2008

It snowed today. Really snowed. Big thick flakes floating down, covering the black ice beneath with a soft white duvet cover.

It was beautiful.


It was also a bit tricky getting out. The hire car, with no snow tires, slipped and slid and bogged down in the snow. Getting the suitcases up the very steep driveway was also challenging. You’d be stomping along, feeling confident when wham bam you were on your butt sliding for the bottom again.

But we eventually packed up and even had the energy to make a final snowman. A cute little fellow (check out his arse).



And then we drove back to Wilton.


Tomorrow we pick up our SUV for our roadtrip to Florida!

Ooh, pretty. I love white Christmasses.

Seriously, HOW did you get the car out of there! (I would’ve gone back inside, covered myself in a doona and said ‘call me when it’s spring’- but then I’m a big girl’s blouse). Have fun on your road trip.

We once got caught in a huge blizzard in New York state where they had 2 feet of snow in 24 hours. They declared a state of emergency and people were cross-country sking down 5th Avenue. You literally could not see our car, except for a little bump in the contours of the snow! We were snowed in for 4 days and had to dig the car out to find it. We thought it was pretty cool and built snowmen too, but my husband´s family, whose holiday home we were staying in, just thought it was a pain because they had seen it happen so often. Have fun in Florida – you can thaw out!
