Saturday was overcast, temps in the 20's and no precipitation. I cut my Saturday short and did not go Sunday so that I could bake for and then attend a cookie swapping party.
This will be the first time making and baking cookies for me. I am reminded that during my teens the younger Gilmore brothers nicknamed me Cookie Monster. Not exactly sure where the nickname came from but it seemed to stick for a few years.
As I sit here writing and waiting for my next batch of cookies to finish there is a wonderful blue sky here in Woodbridge Virginia and I have a strong desire to be out on Old Rag working on one of my Old Rag winter project lists. Top on the list is mapping where I get cell phone reception and where I do not. I will share this information on a future blog once I have a chance to collect it and double check.
The next shot is taken from the spot near the winery that I take pictures to compare seasonal changes. The amount of snow is the obvious change for this week.
The parking lot had more cars than last week. It is getting into that time of year when you probably want to have a shovel in your car just in case you need to shovel a parking space. It is always a good habit to park your car facing out and downhill. This way your battery is easily accessible and you are less likely to be blocked in by cars who park after you.
Here is a shot of the large blowdown from two weeks ago. It was fixed last week but I am just getting a shot of it this week.
The Weakley Hollow Fire Road had about an inch of snow. If you had cross country skis you probably could have skied on it if you were willing to scrape over a rock now and again.
