First Snow

Today's the first snow of the year and it's supposed to be a whopper.

We're getting our part of the system that is supposed to dump 3 feet on the Rocky Mountains.

It's only snowed about 2 inches so far but now we're getting freezing rain and high winds. I got a fire built to keep us warm as the kids played in the snow and the wind helped it jump to life but it also made the fire burn sideways--quite a strange sight.

I was wearing the wrong kind of hat and now have some mild frostbite on the tops of my ears but nothing to really concern myself with.

The new neighborhood has power lines above ground so we may be offline for a while if the wind and rain come in as predicted.

Could be an exciting night around here.

Thanks for reading,

Thanks Pablo.

The snow and wind and ice amounted to...nothing.

As a matter of fact we've got a beautiful day in store today with some falling temperatures later. Right now, however, the sun is out, the sky is clear, and the ice is already starting to melt.
