The Bent Tree House in the Snow
Although Bent Tree gets quite a bit more snow than Atlanta, it is fairly rare for us to get to see it. When the snow occurs, the steep roads are usually impassable, and we can't get there to enjoy it. This week we had quite a bit of snow and cold weather, then it turned warm and sunny for a couple of days to clear the road. Since the house is on the north side of the mountain, the snow lingers on the slopes. The driveway was still covered so we had to park the van at the bottom and walk up. We found a type of sled formed from a thick plastic sheet with hand-holds cut in it and the boys enjoyed sledding with it. They got soaking wet, and we wound up putting their clothes in the dryer twice, once after the sledding and once after our trip to the ice falls in the ankle-deep wet snow. January 3, 1998.
