By around 11:00 am the heavy, wet snow had started to accumulate on the deck.
I was surprised at how much we got and that it's lasted this long. Micro-climates and all. River effect. Whatever. It's very pretty and it was kind of exciting to be out walking in it. I grew up in a snowy climate so none of this is new to me, just unusual for the places I've been living for the past twenty five years or so. Maybe I should go out and try to build un bonhomme de neige (a snowman).
This was around 15h00 (3:00 pm) and the trees in our yard were heavy with snow.
Ken and I both took photos during the course of the day (he even took some video that I think he's posting on his blog this morning). For those of you who live in snowy places, this ain't much. But for us, snow doesn't fall every year, and we haven't seen any accumulation in several years. So, yippee!
