Yesterday is was cloudy and as evening approached the wind picked up and the clouds turned gray and roily. Nightfall and it was better biting wind and the snow began. Slowly drifitng to the ground, the wind had abated and a blanket of white layered the ground. By this morning there was about 4-5 inches of the white stuff.
It is a real dry powdery snow and eaisly blows. Now it is a soft swirly snow twisting to the ground.
For Christmas eve there should be a good mantle of white and Christmas day it will be white but very cold. Well below freezing for a high, 15-20 degrees F.
Last summers flower pots and stand sit under a soft blanket of snow. In respite they await the coming of warmer times.
The once brown pastures now rest under a white covering. A winter drink for the dry grasses.
The highway is covered with snow and the occasional travEler passes by.
Yes it will be a white Christmas.
HAPPY NEW YEAR
