Snowpocalypse! Finally. I thought we might not get any winter this year. Up until this weekend I think we’ve had about 1 inch of snow total for the season and last year at this time we were in the 50s all month, so we seemed to be running out of time when this surprise storm came through and dropped a foot of powder. Here’s a yard shot, after things had compacted a little in today’s afternoon sun, for comparison to the one last month.
We went out to dinner last night, driving through six inches of street snow under snowflake-swirled streetlights. Everything quiet and white, the roads mostly empty. We’re supposed to be in the 40s again later this week, so not sure how long it’ll stick, but it’s great to get a taste of the season at least. The dogs were a little less enthusiastic this morning to paws packed full of snow.
But once we got them playing again, they had a ball.
