LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW
Winter... and Snow..., finally showed up in my Northwestern corner of Illinois. I knew that it would only be a matter of time until it happened, we had been very lucky so for. Just three days earlier, it was still fairly nice. Temperatures were still in the high thirties, and sunny. Thursday it snowed, now we now have about four inches of snow, and the temps. are in the single digits... Brrrrr!!!!! There is something about a new snow fall that makes everything seem so new and fresh, like no one has set foot there.
I love it when there is a hard frost, like we had Saturday morning, it creates a winter wonderland. It's times like this that will draw me outside, in the cold... (I hate the cold), armed with a camera, and an insulated mug of hot tea, to take a few snapshots. I like the atmosphere at this moment; it's so peaceful, and calm. Click, Click Click, Click...ok I'm cold, time to head back in.
Well that's the weather for Sterling, Illinois so far, now what I would like to know, is your winter shaping up, what is the weather like in your area of the country.
