The sun has just broken through the scattered clouds this Monday morning. We will soon put on our layers and head out for our walk. It is still only 36 degrees out there, but the snow is melting and the dripping is no longer from the wet snow and rain falling.
It snowed all day Sunday, but the temperature never got quite to freezing, so the snow did not stick around much. I did go out with my camera about 3:30 yesterday as the snow was letting up to take a few photos.
Snow is pretty. It emphasizes textures and patters, and it contrasts nicely with the colored leaves still on the trees and shrubs.
One set of tire tracks in the driveway. Tom got home from Isaac's soccer match just after the heaviest snowfall. I stayed home.
The wet snow turned to ice crystals that coated the branches.
The hydrangeas will probably go brown after this.
The birds had to tuck their heads under their wings, the poor things.
We are hoping to return to milder, more normal temperatures for a while, but it looks like cold rain will return later in the week. Ugh.
Time to get out and walk while we can.
