As Donna was leaving for work and I was waving her off from the porch, she remarked, “It’s snowing!” – I of course poo-poo’ed the notion. I was sure it was just cold rain.
And then the sun slowly rose and I realized that it WAS snowing! It snowed lightly all morning and into the early afternoon.
After returning from a computer call down the road at a new client, Kenny and I took the time to keep up Mama’s tradition of noting the first snowfall in an appropriate surface (usually the windshield of our Echo).
I snapped the following photo, but by the end of the afternoon, the table had melted in the sun, although some snow was still to be found out in the trees.
|Keeping the tradition alive!|
I was able to get away with only the nighttime fire when the temperature dropped to 18 inside the cabin and it was time to make supper. It went up to 24 by the time I went to bed, but Donna reported that it was back to 15 when she woke up the next morning.
|Kenny kept singing “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” due to these scenes outside.|
