Well, my friends, amazing as it seems, we’re about to release the fourth novel to be set in my fictional town of Angel River, Virginia. And since I’ve been spending so much time here in my imagination, I decided I’d like to write a few blog posts about it, too. I hope that sounds good …

Friday the 22nd: The first flakes started falling around noon.
Friday 1/22: Ninety minutes later we had a nice frosting of snow.
Friday 1/22: This was around 4:00: thicker and deeper!
Friday, 1/22: Snowy woods behind our place.
Friday, 1/22: Snow in the lamplight at twilight. So pretty and peaceful!
Saturday 1/23, around 1 PM. Looking south from the safety of my front stoop. Looks like about 24″ with drifting and plow piles 4 feet and higher. And still coming down!
Saturday, 1/23: Looking north. So pretty!
Sunday, 1/24: Sunset. It’s been a lovely snowy weekend!
For most of us on the East Coast, this past weekend was all about ****snow****. In the Shenandoah Valley, we got a little over 24 inches, and that was plenty! I was personally impressed by how fast the road crews cleared the streets. My husband dug out one of our cars yesterday, so we were able to drive out and get a little emotional head space.
I posted these pictures on Instagram and my Facebook page, but thought you might like to see them here, as well. 🙂
Hope you and your loved ones were safe and warm this weekend!
Spotty internet and gorgeous surroundings have shaped my first week in Shenandoah.
