Finally, it's Cold!

It did snow yesterday, wet and sticky snow that covered everything, though the temperature was hovering close to zero. But then overnight the temperature plunged and we woke up to a bit more snow, and minus 15! All the wet sticky snow had turned to crunchy popcorn ice, and the cars were totally frozen shut.

Today has been a beautiful, if cold, winter day. Sunshine, blue skies, and snow on every tree trunk, every hawthorn twig, every weed and blade of grass in the field. Walked through the woods and around the trails on the old farm west of us, and it was absolutely beautiful in the late afternoon sun. Should have taken the camera.
