Today was Thanksgiving. We invited Fred and Jessie Neill over to dinner. We had a pretty good dinner, too, and at a small cost, about $.40 all told, as we reckoned it. It began snowing before noon and has stormed continually since. I got Mr. Morrows’ sleigh and drew a couple of cords of wood down, this afternoon, and then it stormed so badly I quit. I don’t expect that we will see much bare ground from now until next spring.
