You Tease

The mercury flirted with the freezing mark yesterday. In fact it might just have pushed over that magical threshold. After several overcast days, the sky cleared up somewhat and it felt warm (relatively speaking, that is). Of course it was all just a chimera as I popped my head out the door last night to see this on my front porch...

Of course, at these high latitudes, snow can occur at any time of the year. We didn't seem to get that much snow last year so I take this as Mother Nature's way of restoring the balance. And, as an added bonus, this photo was taken at about 12:15am last "night" so you get a good idea of just how bright it outside at such a "late hour".


That is the chicken said...

Snow...oh no! Spring will come...sometime.
