The snow in all its beauty and grace can disrupt the traveler going home over the ridge. The young man and his grandma gingerly drive south to Willits only to discover that the Ridgewood Grade is closed and the motels are full. They know an old uncle who lives in this town, so they call up to see if they can stop by for a while.
Cody and Norma arrive around 10:00 and we all sip tea and chat, catching up with old times. The two spend the night, and we’re glad that they did. The next morning we visit and snap a few shots.
Thanking us graciously for our kindness, they drive away.
