Well, we got our first snow of the new winter last night (not counting a TINY dusting we got Christmas Eve). The weather people said we were going to get 10 inches (UGH–plowing bill), but we only got 2-3 inches (YAY–beauty without the trouble!).
The bird’s food dish was frozen (there was rain mixed in the snow) so I had to go out and toss some seeds on top. Here’s a view from my back upstairs window above the bird feeder.
Out back where the birds are, the trees were covered with snow.
And the sun rose over the freshly fallen snow. I always forget how beautiful the first snow is until I see it.
