Nice coating of frozen water over the landscape this morning. Inched down the driveway in Amy's Wrangler (mine's in the shop) to find Sandy Flats Road still covered. A half-mile down the road, Floyd County Rescue Squad ambulance in mdidle of road, transferring a neighbor from his frozen SUV for transport to the hospital for dialysis. Stopped to help.

Ah, Winter in the mountains.
