Really? No Snow?
I had great hope yesterday that we would see our first snow (I would have been happy with flurries). My preferred weather resource for our area is Local Yokel Weather and snow was in the forecast...the morning sky showed the front rolling in and the air was crisp and smelled of snow...
...but as the day progressed, blue skies refused to relinquish their stake and by the end of the day what remained was slightly hazy sky with resplendent moon peeking through the bare branches...
...all I could think was "really? no snow?"...but it's hard to feel like Mother Nature gave us a raw deal when the night sky provides such a restorative scene.
This morning, when I looked out the window, the Rhododendron reflected how raw it was outside (see the leaves curled so tightly?...they only do this when the temperature is below 20 degrees..between 32 and 20 the leaves remain more open) and sure enough, the thermometer read 10.6F. We may not have had snow, but it sure resembled winter!
