Minden more

We woke to snow this morning! It snowed on and off all day and the clouds shifted constantly. We lucked out to borrow a handy Lexus in the afternoon so we could zip into long driveways at prestigious addresses without our usual concern about the VV being able to turn around or getting ourselves identified as undesirables. Up against the mountains these impressive homes nest with great pluck and authority but was the cloud dampened mountains that impressed us…what a great day to be wandering around!
What a bad week for those who borrow. It is good we have never had credit cards and owe nothing. (But we will have trouble picking up veggie oil if it stays this cold since it will be too congealed to pump.) Just like everyone else I wonder how all this financial mess will play out and not for those people who managed to get themselves perched up there above the Carson Valley. This whole experience of canvassing the wealthy has been rather unexpected…
