Well, I went to my first Installation of officers for Eastern Star this afternoon. It was in the low mountain country and since the weather was looking gray and wet, we took a raincoat with a hood to go over the clothes. As we went over the summit of the one pass, there was snow mixed in with the rain. It was early in the day and we figured we'd be okay. Weather people had said snow down as low as 3500 feet, but when are they ever right on target?
The installation was beautiful and afterwards we went into the dining hall for a High Tea. We had just finished when I looked out the window and saw snow falling. I nudged the one member of my car pool and said look outside. She looked and nudged the driver and said "We're outta here!". As we headed home it continued to snow. It was not sticking to the road but it was starting to stick to the dirt and trees along side the road. We got down out of the mountains safely and were back into rain. We all agreed that it was a very nice thing to have that installation in the middle of the day rather than at night.
So the season starts. I only have 3 more weekends of crazy this month.
