Life in the North Country and making your escape...

Winter will be upon us soon, a season I love but also a season that many people just don't understand.  On a recent trip to my grandmother's, my sister and I decided to dig through old photo albums.  We found one of our mother and her siblings standing on a rather large snowbank next to their ranch home.

Uncle: "Look at that.  That's the roof.  The snow was only 18 inches shy of the roof."
Gram: "That was the year we went to Florida."

The best part is that my grandparents' trip to Florida had nothing to do with the snow, it turned out.  My grandfather apparently made a bet with a friend that he & my grandmother could be in Florida by the next day.  They were.

Happy autumn-almost-winter!
