Plowing the snow has begun at Holy Cross Abbey but as anyone who lives in Clarke County already knows, there is a LOT of snow to clear. We’re heaping surreal and compacted piles of the stuff.
We hope to reopen Retreat House on Friday. Of course, the gift shop is closed. Whatever problems remain here, Castleman Road, approaching our front gate, is worse at present. The road is only clear for one car and four-wheel drive is recommended. As before, we are all fine and our monastic routine continues unhindered.
