Looked out the windows and saw this . . .
A real snowstorm!
The day started cloudy, turned sunny, then grew ominously dark. First came rain, then the temperature dropped dramatically, the wind picked up, and rain turned to snowflakes flying all over! I was safely ensconced inside watching through the door right next to where I was . . .
Didn't take long to get about an inch of snow on the ground. Unfortunately, having rain first caused an ice base upon which the snow stuck. Even the broom is ineffective at clearing the sidewalks at that point. But I gave it my best effort. Hip hip hooray for snow!
