Footprints in the Snow

This past weekend has brought the first snow of the season to the central Piedmont. We don’t get much snow here in south-central Virginia, so it’s good that this snow came on a weekend. Snow on the roads brings everything to a stand still as the folks around here do not get much chance to practice driving in the snow.
A warm fire inside and no place to go. I enjoyed watching the wintry scene outside my window from my comfortable spot on the couch, hot totty in hand, and football on the TV.
Today we take for granted a warm home at the flip of a switch or twist of a dial. If we need to venture out into the cold to stock up on beer and snacks before the big game, our cars are heated as is the brightly lit store packed with neighbors stocking up on milk and bread.
No matter how tough our winters may seem, for the rural folks of days past, winter was a test of endurance. As I searched my collection for songs about winter and snow it soon became clear that the majority of songs were sad tales of loss and hard times.
