Grandmother Oak

I'm certainly the lucky one in my family today, it's snowing here in the sierra foothills of central CA. It's snowing as low as 2000 feet, I'm at about 2200. It's the third time this week...a rare thing. Since snow is not part of our every day lives it stops life as we normally conduct it.

The electricity may go's part of a snowy day in Coarsegold...The road between here and the larger town of Oakhurst has already closed. My husband, daughter and son-in-law are all in Oakhurst. Many calls from my daughter this morning regarding that problem. School may close early...but the buses might not run. My grandson is at school on my side of the mt. If it snows much longer I most likely won't be able to get out of my driveway. Some problem solving may be needed today.

But at the moment, I am the lucky one....I'm tucked up in my chair, posting here by the fireplace, looking out the window at the show Mother Nature is providing. It is so pretty...we have a lot of oak trees on our property... oak trees, with snow in place of leaves are just beautiful. One of the trees is a 300+ year old Great Grandmother Oak. She is so stately....and beautiful at every time of year....I love to get up next to her and smell her and touch her moss covered bark, her trunk is huge, all those layers!......She has seen so much and provided so much. I just love her!
