During the day yesterday we had slushy, rainy snow on and off... the first snow fall and certainly no accumulation on the ground... last night when I went to bed there was a dusting so light on the railing of the deck that I couldn't tell whether it was actually snow or just a heavy frost. The air was all glittery by the porch light, so I assumed it might be snow. This morning, I woke to a world still mostly green, but almost before my very eyes the tiny glitters in the air became heavier and heavier flakes... I'd be willing to bet that some of them were an inch across!!
Well done winter... I'm impressed.
