The way....


This is what the roads looked like north of here...we had just come up this road. I stopped to take photos of cattle, and old farm house, and could not resist shooting the road.

We ened up in Covington, a small town north of us about 30 or 40 miles...we ate at a little restaurant there, and went in a couple antique shops just to look. I always like looking at old things...some of them bring back memories for me....while a lot are older than that.

In both shops we stopped at, we talked to the owners...had fun visiting with them.

The road looks slippery in the first picture, but beautiful. I love the quaint downtown!!

Do you all have 4-wheel drive? I'll bet you do.. We don't ---so when it snows, we don't go anywhere if we don't have to...

Great photos... Love seeing the snow. Glad you had a good time in Covington.
Hugs,
Betsy

Very pretty pics, Rose. Sounds like a good day. That much snow here would shut down our city!!!

Ellie said...

Very nice pictures - I love the look of that wee town. Sounds like you had a very nice day out!!

Sandra said...

me to on the antique shops and lots of memories. i also like to think about who used it and how and where and when. i like the shot of the town with the cars parked at the shops. i can see the snow did not keep them home

I like your high view of the road. The power line poles add to the perspective of the road and the rows in the field. The town looks very interesting too. It's always fun to drop into a different place and check out their local coffee places or restaurants.

Looks wintery! (like here). Really like the road shot, I'm glad you stopped to photography it!

The road sure looks pretty covered in snow. I think snow improves the looks of winter's drab brown.

You have a heavy dusting of snow. We're expecting more winter weather during the overnight. An additional 4-6 inches of snow is in the forecast. Covington looks like a nice town.

I like your snowy pictures, especially of the road. I don't think I've ever been to Covington, but it reminds me of several small Indiana towns I have visited.

Debbie said...

just the right amount for pretty, but it doesn't keep you home!!

i love a little adventure in the 4 wheel drive sled!!

I wish we had had that much snow. I miss taking my snowy road pics.
We haven't had that much all winter so far.

Susan said...

What cool photos!

Mary said...

I love small towns with antique stores. It's been awhile since I've been to browse in an antique store....must do that soon now that you have made me think about it :-) Love the road shot! You have snow on the ground...none here.

Marie said...

Lovely snowy road scene! I sure wouldn't have minded having one small snow this winter! Oh well! :-)

Thanks so much for stopping by piece-fulness to see the Quilt Show! I am glad Mary told you about it, and glad that you often check that quilting blog (which hasn't had much on it in the past few months!)
