Snow: The Evidence

So I went out for that walk yesterday (the temperature being around 27F or so - which is when my camera seized up - seems to be working fine now, the prima donna...)

Here's a few shots I managed to take before the thing died on me -

Today? Bright sunshine, overnight temperature recorded as 14F out on the deck, currently 26F, tonight's prediction 19F. According to Lady Neighbour who braved the roads this morning, it's all slick ice underneath a thin layer of powdered snow. If our authorities have done anything about the roads (ploughing? salt? sand?) it is not in evidence. Without studded tires or heavy duty chains - and apparently even with them, as Lady Neighbour found out to her cost - the roads are pretty much... interesting... right now. Haven't walked very far down the street but it would not surprise me in the least to find a couple of sedans in the ditches today.

Staying put. Writing. The sun is still shining, for all the freezing temperatures outside, the wildlife critters are out there in the snow (and to the best of my ability fed), the cats are sleeping curled around the heater, it's all good.

See you on the flip side of the Arctic Interlude.
