This shadowy, hunch-backed figure hiked two and a half miles in the snow over our impassable road to rob our farm, stealing away clothing and other items that belong to Weston and Morgan. Then he returned to my cousin’s house.


In fact, I think it WAS Weston! But it’s hard to say because I haven’t seen much of him lately. The kids remain at my cousin’s house, within reach of civilization (and school), until the weather improves.

    That’s a great young man – walking 2 1/2 miles in the snow – across the river fork to get stuff for his siblings! Then to walk 2 1/2 miles back out! Give him some hot chocolate!

    Wonderful son! and to do it for his sister….well, her foot is in a cast, so she very well couldn’t do it!

    He can now say…..when I was a kid, I had to walk 2 1/2 miles…. :lol:

    Good on Weston! It’s very thoughtful and kind of your cousin and his wife to keep the kids for you while the weather is making things so difficult. That must be a load off your mind.

    Wouldn’t we love to be a bug in the rug when he has children to tell his stories to. Morgan, too.

    This will be a winter to remember! I’m sure your son will, and he will have stories to tell his kids and grandkids. ;)
    You are leaving him quite a legacy with all your pictures and stories.
    Maybe they will all be printed in a book someday?

    My daddy used to tell us about walking to school in the snow, it wasn’t until we were much older that we realised, he always lived here. The middle of South Carolina has never had 2 ft of snow. maybe 2 or 3 inches, once in a blue moon.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
