It looks like it’s going to be another beautiful day on our favorite mountain. The sky is clear and blue, the ground is white with last night’s snow—we received about one and one-half inches of dry powder with no wind—spectacular! The temperature was a balmy 21 degrees at 7:00 AM. The roads in our area remain closed. The rangers advised me to tell folks to stay home and to stay safe today—it sounds as though they already have plenty of accidents and stranded vehicles to take care of!
Folks frequently ask me what winter caretakers do when they are snowed in on the mountain. Well—obviously shovel snow. And bake bread! This time it’s CORN BREAD! I’ve made lots of corn bread before at home, but here I have a new stove, a new oven, a new pan, and new ingredients.
It turned out okay—not awesome as intended—but okay. It seems that I will have lots of time to practice—and, as we know “practice makes perfect!”
Stay safe. Stay warm. Enjoy your time with friends,
