Last winter was famously mild. This winter is getting an early start maybe to make up for last year.
On my old blog, I used to publish photos of the first snow (2011, 2010, 2008). I like that tradition and can’t quite recall why I didn’t do it more consistently. They say that this storm will give us a fair bit of snow (6-10 inches), but that it won’t last long. The snow is wet and slushy and already bending trees. It was 80 degrees here on Monday.
So, here’s an image of the first snow this year:
We’re just a bit worried about our apple trees which still had a good many apples on them.
