We got a little snow too in Murphy. We planned to take some picture, but it was gone before we got around to it.

Pretty views from your mountain.

Looks like you got your frost, and your snow! Looks lovely!

Oh wow .... the tracks in the snow on the road made me so homesick all of a sudden!! I've never experienced a Cherry Mountain snowfall ... that'll be one of those things I finally get to experience once my little hide-away is built and I become a "mountain woman"!!! I love you!!!!!! Wish I were there! See you Christmas!!!
