The first significant snowfall of the season is always an occasion, good or bad depending on the circumstances. In this case, it was also the first snow at the new house. It was just a coating, and had already changed to freezing rain by the time I got up, but at least it covered the ground and stuck to the trees. I was also pleased to see the snowplow come through our street before mid-morning; I hope that bodes well for future storms.
Here is the view from the back yard:
I thought the pine trees that separate us from our next-door neighbors looked nice:
Here you can see the little crape myrtle trees that we planted at the back of the lot after we moved in.
This will melt pretty fast as soon as the temperature rises above freezing, which it almost is now; but for the moment it’s covering our mud and straw, and looks nice.
