While the record snowfall we just had this week snarled traffic, closed businesses, and required a lot of shoveling, it did give us a winter wonderland. I took a walk before sunset last night to take some photos of the gorgeous snow. It is bitterly cold though. Right now it is -2 degrees Fahrenheit (-19 Celsius). That’s a bit colder than I like it to be. The good news is the sun is shining and it is beautiful outside.

You made the best of a chilly day.
I think the snow is beautiful. I just don’t want it to stick around very long.
I know that feeling. We have been very lucky over recent years and the snow has never lasted long.
Brrr is right. I’m not a big fan of very cold weather. But it is the winter solstice so the days will start getting longer.
Not even a frost here as yet. Been a strange year – October record high temperatures, November Record Highs and now December going the same way with daily record highs. None of us like the disabling effect the snow can have but in small doses its magic. Will we get a winter I really don’t know…..so it is nice to be kept in reality with your snowy images 🙂
We had an unusually warm November. The weather here really varies. Yesterday it was 46 degrees Fahrenheit and we had some rain so a lot of the snow was melted. There’s still plenty of snow but not as much as last week. Overnight the temperature got down to 10 degrees Fahrenheit. Crazy weather.
These photos are beautiful — looks like such a serene place 🙂
Thank you. There’s something about new fallen snow that is so peaceful and quiet.
