Within the last few days the temperature has dropped back into the low 30's, maybe even dipped below freezing on a few nights. When the sun comes out it's not too bad, but when it's cloudy and/or rainy, the cold is just intensified. Although the local forecast called for snow, I really didn't expect it to amount to much. Yesterday morning around 10 a.m. I glanced outside and did a double-take. Were those teeny tiny snowflakes? Yes indeed they were, but I wasn't worried. I knew that with the size of those snowflakes we couldn't possible have any accumutation. And then the flakes got bigger....and bigger, and they came faster and faster, and before we knew it we had at least 4 inches of snow!
This is only the second time in 7 winters that we've had any snow worth talking about. The snow plow -actually snow tractor- came down the street several hours ago, but I don't think we'll be going anywhere anytime soon. We have plenty of everything we need, and as long as the electricity stays on we're okay! The satellite stopped working - probably too much snow on the dish - and the electricity did blink on and off a few times, but that's about it. Here are some pics -
And this morning - it's already melting...
