It snowed here in the desert. It's gorgeous, especially all of those alien-looking Joshua Trees flocked with white powder, but after a particularly freezing Monday driving around, taking in the cool beauty of the mountains and the cozy little snow capped cabins, and then lingering far too long on sad/strangely impressive Christmas decorations adorning western themed real estate offices and tiny medical centers, I wanted to stay inside. Now that today, Joshua Tree is entirely covered with the white stuff, I'm definitely not leaving.
Driving the frigid Z through the muck or doing cookies at the Park and Ride wasn't as appealing (or possible -- I can't get down the hill) -- as imbibing, watching cable (Investigation Discovery -- waiting for Dr. Stone to tell me who is "Most Evil," according to his scale) and sleeping on the floor.
By the way, I'm currently snowed in and without any food save for a box of white rice (I wasn't expecting this much snow). Any desert denizens with a bitchin' all terrain vehicle want to take me to the market? I'm starving. But no matter how hungry I get, I wish I could stay here forever. Forget Los Angeles. But again, food...?
Pictures of the snow will be coming, if I can make it outside to snap some decent shots. As for now, look at more snowblind friend carpet, curtains and fireplace pics here.
