I love the first snow of the year. Actually, as long as I don’t have to drive anywhere (except to play in it) I really do love it when it snows. Don’t like winter, don’t like cold, but like snow. Go figure.
The storm was supposed to hit last night. Rain, turning to snow overnight and then some more rain/snow mix today. Instead it was nice enough out that I got to fix the leaning fence, cover the swamp cooler and winterize the back porch. With power tools (dangerous in the rain) and not even a light jacket.
Tonight’s a whole different story. About 5ish, it snowed a little, changed to rain and then even cleared up enough to see the sun poke out right before sunset. Now, 8:58 Mountain Standard Time, it’s snowing like Buffalo, NY out there. Big, honkin’ flakes, not our usual tiny, dry “Greatest Snow on Earth” snow. But hey, it is only the middle of November.
Anyhoo, here’s a few of the shots I just took from my front porch.
My dirt-biking kokopelli hits a little snow on the porch railing.
