Maury Place Snow Day Getaway

Good afternoon from Maury Place!  Today is definitely a snow day!  It started snowing here in the wee hours of the morning and has not stopped yet at 2:00 p.m. as I write this!  It is looking like we will have at least 12 inches of snow on the ground when this storm ends.  It may be snowy and cold outside, but it is warm and cozy inside at Maury Place.  We have all of our downstairs fireplaces going, and I have just taken a batch of brownies out of the oven.  Something about snow always makes me want to bake!  We have guests lingering in the library enjoying our various books about Richmond history and another couple planning a game of backgammon upon their return from a stroll outside!  By the way, our guests this weekend are from Delaware, Indiana and Chile!  I think some might have been surprised by the severity of the storm, but they are happy to be snowbound at Maury Place!
