Waking up to new fallen snow on the first day of a new year was magical, and a wonderful symbol of making a fresh start.
The snow was light and fluffy, and made a wonderful crunch under my boots as I wandered in the garden. Now you can come with me.
There. And you didn't even have to put your boots on or get cold.
Much of the snow is sticking around now, but not prettily. Streets are clear but shoulders and sidewalks are icy, making it tricky to go for a walk. We might have to drive out of the neighborhood, since the snow was not very widespread.
The 2nd day of the new year has now gone dark, and the temperature is 28 and dropping. January is upon us.
