It began to snow this morning and has kept it up all day, the wind got in the north and a sort of blizzard has prevailed. I guess I can’t go to Frankfort tomorrow. Freed and I went to church this forenoon. I painted and did pen and ink work on a birthday card which, I am going to send to Kate as next Friday is Kate’s birthday. I wrote he [sic] a letter too. I read some in my papers today so as to post up on the news. It looks as though we was going to have winter until it is time for summer. I would like to see the ground bare and hear the birds sing again. I suppose we will in due time.
