Late-Winter Snowfall

Thursday, February 22, 2018
For the past two days, I have awoken to snow softy falling from the evergreen trees in our backyard.  The snow falls during the night, making for a beautiful white morning, then melts away during the day, only to fall again the following night.  The nights have been very cold, just over 20°F (that's about -7 °C, for those of you using the Celsius scale, that is, everyone besides the US).  After cold nights, the sun comes out, and it warms up during the day to about 39°F (4°C).  There have been beautiful winter mornings and evenings, but this last burst of winter weather has forced me to put my gardening plans on hold for the next week.  That's okay, though, because the snow has been so pretty, and I have been able to spend the past couple of days indoors with the kids due to snow days.
