We have a different look to our world outside this morning.
Getting the deck furniture put away yesterday was on our list, but . . . um, it didn't get done. The above picture was taken at 6 a.m. this morning. Looks as though we got 2-3" of very wet, heavy snow.
The garden beds had their winter blanket pulled up and tucked in.
No ice on the pond at this temperature. Can you see the two geese and one wild duck foraging for food? They're waddling around saying, "Well, hrumpf! I know there was green grass here yesterday."
I don't know if this first snow cover will stay or not. The forecast is for our temperatures to plummet this coming week, but the thermometer presently reads 32.6° and is creeping upwards. Time will tell.
