snowy morning


First snow at sea level arrived this morning, beautiful, mesmerizing thick fluffy flakes falling for two or three hours but still too wet to build up very much, then quickly washed away by rain. The local mountains have been getting quite a bit over the last while and will be opening this weekend to skiers and snowboarders. Down here we may be getting more snow this evening along with high winds, hopefully not like the storms of winter 2006-07. With very cold (as low as -9C) and clear days and nights ahead, it would feel so Christmas-y if we had some snow stay with us.
