I saw my first snow flakes Saturday night.

For me that first snow I see is an notable event.

We had worked a wedding party in Chevy Chase, MD. It was cold and windy with gusts pushing the van side to side on I-495 and I-66. Around 2 am we pulled into the Gainsville, VA Wawa for coffee and doughnuts, the traditional roadie fare for late night drives. Of course they never seem to have doughnuts when we arrive, but that's another story. The heavens let loose and snow flurries swirled around and around like dust devils. We paused for a few minutes and watched them before we headed south. My brother fell asleep, so I was all alone driving, but kept company by his snores. Every few minutes a flurry would swirl around again in my headlights. It was very pretty and ethereal.

OK. I'm done. I've had my snow flake fix. Come on Spring!

I took a ride in the Shenandoah Valley today and hoped to see some campaign signs

in order to post my observations to GD 16 with grave concern.

The valley is a tad conservative so I expected lots of tRump signs, but the winner is a third party candidate who is not known to me.

Just who is this N O Trespassing and what's their platform?
