First Snow of the Season - November 19, 2000
At last we finally had our first real snow of the season. We had snow
flurries on October 2, but no accumulation. And since this was the first real
snow since I've moved into my house, I got kind of carried away with the video
today so there are lots of pictures on this page! Instead of usual "week
of" pages I decided to devote a whole page to one day.
We spent most of the morning inside watching it snow. My friend Kenny came
up later on in the day so we went for a hike around the house and then up to
the nearby mountain top.
We woke up this morning to a winter wonderland
outside. Here Timber is checking out the view from my bedroom upstairs.

It finally made it up to the high of the day, 30

Timber was having a real good time!

Here's the scene of the house as we come back from our hike.

We decided to drive up to the mountain top on the Ranch. Here
is a view of the Barn and Pond.
Another view of the Pond.
A spectacular view of the Smokies from the top...
... and another.
Here's a view of a near by landmark mountain...
... and a close up.
Here, Timber is mousing on the mountain top.
He's having a great time.
He heard a mouse inside this tree trunk
Here's the house as we come back from the mountain
top. The sun is already setting on the house.

After all the hiking Timber still wants to go
What a sweet dog.
After the sun set a thick fog formed as the
temperature fell back below the dew point.
This is looking from the front porch to the back
yard and woods.

You can barely see the garage from the front porch!
Back inside it's warm and cozy. Now to grill some
steaks for supper!
