Winter Hath Arrived
It started clouding up last night and this morning it smelt like snow was on it's way. For non-Northerners the air has a particular cool, crisp smell about it before it snows. I really can't describe it. I just know it when I smell it. Then some point after lunch it started. Max and Rebecca were transfixed by the sight of little misshapen clumps of snow fell outside.
The flakes were still lumpy and not at all the beautiful and refined crystals of colder weather. And yet, it is still snow and that is all the matters.
When I last checked at 10:30 the total was at four and still accumulating. I've always said we get our winter in February.
