Did anyone else notice that beautiful rainbow ring around the moon this past Thursday night? When I was a kid I used to always think moonrings meant snow. Driving across the Huguenot Bridge on Friday (12/4), I saw about ten bufflehead in the river right around the bridge…just a few. Today, I didn’t get down to the river at all but spent the whole day at an amazing writing conference for high school students held at the Appomattox Regional Governor’s School in Petersburg. Late in the afternoon, we looked out the library window and saw it was snowing!
