The Winter Solstice arrived yesterday and it was also our first snow of this season! We were a bit surprised because the snow wasn't anticipated very far in advance. Local forecasters had only been predicting a few days of heavy rain.
There is something magical about a first snow. Like two little kids, my daughter and I are drawn outside to explore, enjoying the way the snow covers everything in pristine white.
Here is a short video of the snow falling:
About an inch total accumulated by the end of the evening. We didn't spend very long outside due to the cold. It was a heavy, wet, slushy kind of snow. The kind of snow that quickly chills you to the bone. We only went outside a couple times, mostly to take care of the chickens and ducks.
Hope you all are keeping warm!
