We had an early vet appointment this morning and woke up to a semi spiteful little snowstorm that made visibility a bit iffy and the roads quite slick. But it was SO beautiful! Not far from home, three deer meandered out on the road and then seeing us approaching, just stood there - you know what deer are like! My husband slowed down, beeped the horn, and the deer farthest from the road went back into the woods. The other two ran across, jumped the fence, and as we watched, bounded easily through the snow and into the far woods. We've seen them so often, but every time is magic. Such a wonderful "image gift" on a less than perfect day.
We realized that the road was getting more clear, and soon we caught up with a snow plough who led us safely into the village where our vet has his practise. The appointment went very well, it's a case of so far, so good, with nothing bad expected. Just one more test to get back to be able to say with 100% certainty, "Whew, alls well that ends well!"
And the snow? It's melting already.
