Call it global warming, call it merely a historically repetitive cycle we're going through once again, but we've not had a Thanksgiving with snow on the ground for many years in these parts. It looks as if all that is going to be changed this year.
On top of the three or so inches on the ground, we've had snow falling since noon today and although there has been no great accumulation, the ground is definitely white, the temperature is great for snowing at 27 degrees and the forecast is for a few more inches by midnight.
This snow on top of soft ice will not make for good ice skating on our pond for our Thanksgiving Day fresh air and exercise so we're thinking of hiking the loop up through our woods in back instead. That is if anyone can be roused from chairs in front of the fire. Not that there will be anything wrong with enjoying that either. A day of total lounging around sounds pretty good.
