More snow

IcicleWe kicked off Mark appreciation week on Thursday with a trip to the big city to see Avatar in 3D.  Even though the story had some flaws, the world building and visuals were so stunning that by the time we stepped back out the door, we were shocked to see snow falling on a dark, cold night.

The roads get dicey fast in the mountains, and it took us about two hours to drive what usually takes 45 minutes.  On the north side of the hills, the snow that knocked out our power three weeks ago is still hanging on, but is now invisible under another layer of white.  Luckily, Mark's an experienced driver and we made it home with no mishaps.

The world has been white and frozen for so long that I feel like I've moved to New England for the winter!

So, you liked the movie?

Yes, very much! Although, in retrospect, the story was a bit basic and had too much fighting. Still, I was awestruck by the world, primarily the plants and the animals. :-)
