As pretty as the last snowfall was, it didn’t last longer than a day. The temps stayed cold, but the snow was gone. Now we are getting another round. It’s kinda crazy. It is really unusual for us to get anything measurable before Thanksgiving, but we got our first one before Halloween (that one might have broken a record) and we’ve already had a second since then and it looks like we might be working on a third today. It’s going to be one hell of a winter.
…just doesn’t have quite the same ring to it. MC saw all the snow clinging to everything yesterday and said it looked like Christmas. It does make a pretty contrast, but… yeah. Not yet. It is all mostly gone today, but the cold is hanging tight. Feels more like January than November.
It’s cold and I have about an inch of snow on the ground this morning. It’s the kind that is wet and clings to everything so the world seems dusted in sugar. It’s a beautiful backdrop for working on more edits today.
I think we skipped it. We have already had a measurable snow. Not a ton, but measurable. We are also stupidly cold for being in the middle of October, including already having freeze warnings. But hey! I get to really test out the new furnace. I just hope it doesn’t completely kill off my mums that are JUST starting to bloom.
Then, Mother Nature decided to play one hell of an April Fool’s prank. Letting us believe spring was finally here and warmer weather and sunny days on their way. Psych! Nope! Not yet puny mortals!
I am just starting to see the tops of these beginning to poke through. It won’t be long now before those and more are up and adding color to the drab landscape. I am in desperate need for some color to help yank me out of the funk I’ve been in the last several weeks. I am finally ready to see the end of winter even though it feels wrong to not have gotten much of any kind of snow this season. One of the reasons I love the area we live in is because we get to fully experience all of the seasons, but it has felt like all we got out of winter this year was cold, weird and dreary. I am done with that. Bring me some warmth and some color please.
But, sadly… not here. At least not this year. I haven’t seen snow like that since I took this picture seven years ago. Unless we get something major before spring, we will have been lucky to have gotten even a tiny fraction of that amount all season. I like winter, but it better come with snow otherwise the cold just isn’t worth the effort.
We got more snow this morning. Not a lot. Probably less than an inch, but it was a nice refresh to what we got the other day and that had already mostly melted. I like seeing it on the ground, stuck in the branches of the trees and on the bushes. It is especially nice that there isn’t so much that the roads are bad. There is something about a new snow that makes the world feel fresh and new and clean. Continue reading “More Snow”
Santa came early last night and left us our first inch of snow for the season. With the cold temps, we should still have it on the ground for tomorrow. It isn’t much, but it is there and it is white and beautiful.
Merry Christmas Eve!
