Friday Fences & SWF - Blacksurg Road


Buckle up, we're going for a ride down Blacksburg Road in Fincastle. I travel this road quite a bit going to the boys baseball, football and basketball games. It's a nice, picturesque little drive.

As I sit here on Thursday afternoon getting this post ready to run Friday, it's cold and windy. VERY cold! I just took Ozzy outside and noticed a big branch had broke off a tree and landed in his yard.

Waiting on this snow they say we are probably going to get on Friday. They are saying 2-4 inches starting around 1:00 in the afternoon. Not good news for those of us trying to get a snow day out of this lol...the timing is everything!

I suppose we should head outside and gather up a bunch of kindling for the fire before it's all under snow.

Have a great weekend!

Also, wanted to share with you this important notice about Beneful Dog Food. If you feed this to your dog(s) stop now:

"Purina's Beneful dog food killing dogs nationwide; No recall issued by FDA"

And now a plea for help from one of you awesome computer guru types. I want to get the cute social media buttons like these


to put in my sidebar. Nancy at Rural Journal told me how once and I didn't do it and forget how. So pretty please? With sugar on top?! :)

*Weather Update* We ended up getting a snow day today from this upcoming winter weather. I was shocked. Our county closed the schools by 10PM last night. Usually they hold out to the morning. The kids were excited to know they could sleep in today! No snow so far.

  15. What a cool photo! The sky looks so neat. Hope everyone is enjoying the snow day!

    That is scary about the Beneful food. We don't feed our dog that brand so we're good thankfully. Thanks for sharing, though!

  16. Those fences are beautiful, but I'll bet they take a lot of maintenance to keep them looking so good.

    We don't have any snow today, but ice has shut down just about everything. I haven't seen a car on the road all day.

  17. So neat and I bet it looks totally different now. Caught the video of your sweet Ozzy in the snow on FB.

  25. LOVE this shot Tanya! The juxtaposition of road and fence is super.
    Kinda reminds me of that old TV show "Along Came Bronson" and the 'going down that long lonesome highway' song that opened and closed the show.

  26. Finally up above freezing, it has been cold over here. I will have to go over that section of the road some day, I have been the other way into blacksburg taking photos.

  27. Lovely shot of your much-traveled road, Tanya. Hope you get the snow and it's timed perfectly for a snow day!
