It's November 17th and we have had our first measurable snowfall for the season. Trouble with this is that it is November 17th. Not only do we have snow but the pond froze over for the last two nights, giving way to the warmth of the sun during the day but only slightly. In this area we should not see the freezing of water until after January 1st and then it is only safe to get on to skate etc. if it is solid with no melting for 3 weeks. Last night it got down to 13 deg. but on a better note next Monday it is to be 57 deg. or above normal. Welcome to the Miami Valley.
These photos are meant to set a mood about the 5" of snow we got and the bone chilling temperatures that are upon us and yet I think there is beauty in winter scenes. April seems so far away right now.
