Check out USA Today's travel website for a photo montage entitled "Tennessee in 40 Postcard-Perfect Images." The 29th photo shows our country road following a winter ice storm. While I walked down the road to snap this photograph on a Sunday morning in early December, our two mares watched from a distance (note their presence in the background). To the right lies one patch of our woods and our house is located just around the bend. I am an occasional iStock contributor, the source of the photo for USA Today.
This is our story, in real time and in photos. It is neither unique nor unusual nor extraordinary. But it is our story.
