Today is the first official day of winter and the shortest day of the year! On the bright side, I can now look forward to longer days when the sun sets after 4:30 PM. However, on the down side, it’s already snowed four times before winter started, and I have a feeling I’m going to be shoveling a lot more snow before the season is over. I took most of these pictures during the last snowfall and not during last weekend’s snowstorm (which I later found that the correct term is called a nor’easter or northeaster, one level below blizzard status).
I had to pick Frank up from the airport during the last snowfall, so I was outside close to midnight shoveling snow because his flight was delayed! I was really excited to see how bright it was outside, so I ran back into the house to grab my camera to get this night shot.
Here’s my street the next morning.
The backyard. So pretty to see all the trees draped in snow!
My yard is completely white with snow except for this one leaf!
I love it when the snow starts to melt and you can see the plant below poking through.
