The traveling teapot had quite a surprise on its latest journey! It traveled up the mountain so it could serve tea on an autumn day, but as the elevation increased, it started to rain. Before long the rain turned to snow -- white, fluffy, sticky snow! The trees were soon coated with a layer so heavy it made them bow and drape. The dirt road turned white as it wound its way through the woods. The green gate at Cabin-Woods Road was coated with piles of white snow. Instead of serving up cups of spicy autumal tea, the traveling teapot was filled with a full-bodied, plain wintery tea instead. And --- before the traveling teapot left for the valley below --- five inches of snow adorned the table that was to be set for autumn tea. Snow!
