Snow, rain and up to 38 degrees.
Fortunately the roads were clear by 9:45 when I drove to Batavia for a dentist appointment.
At 1:30, our friend Carina S. and her three children came over for a visit with the horses.
They are home schooled and were working on an Equine unit.

Clara recited the poem (I'm Usually A Speedy Horse) to me and Levi asked me if I knew what caballo meant. These kids sure learn a lot and are very comfortable sharing it. Kudos to their Mom, who is an outstanding teacher.
It was raining when we were with the ponies and we all got wet.
Back at the house the fire felt divine.
Dinner? White hots, roasted sweet potatoes and a big salad.
