Local Lore: 17 Snows

After a few days of no Snow on the ground, it's snowing today. So far, it is pretty light, but that counts.

Local lore has it that the date of the 1st Snow gives the number of Snows we will have during the upcoming Winter. Since our 1st Snow was November 29th, that means we could expect to have 29 Snows. I admit, I was a bit depressed when I heard that initially. I have not been keeping track, but Melanie thinks that means we should have 17 Snows left.

We keep listening for all these wonderful bits of Story, Wisdom, and Practice that are a part of living in this County and living in the Country. Our Neighbor shared this tidbit, along with many others. We are very grateful!
