Frost is so heavy on the pasture grasses it looks like snow. And the sun has taken me by surprise, coming an hour earlier than it did a few days ago, so not sure I’ll be able to get pix. But I’m gonna try. (This image from same time last year.)

Meanwhile, here’s a short video of some of the carrying-on at the Floyd Country Store at this week’s Radio Show. The dancing, and other more visually-oriented activities, came in the hour after the official on-the-digital-air portion of the show.

    but in the absence of snow a good frost will do
    I have high hopes for more snow this winter, since coming back to the UK we’ve had three years with snow, which I think is perfect
