We got our first significant snow of the winter and I am so excited to finally be able to get some photographs! This is the first real snow we have had since last February and the three prior snow shower events came and went so quickly that all was melted before pictures could be taken. Winter storm Hercules arrived yesterday, reaching its full potential by evening, and exited this morning. It is 16 degrees outside with a wind chill of -2 and we are blanketed under 12 inches of glorious snow. With the help of a zoom lens I was able to take some photos from the small cleared area we have under our protected overhang.

It's is a amazing how the snow can come and go so quickly. Just yesterday we were preparing for blizzard like conditions and now we are blanketed in snow and the sun is out and shining in the blue sky. It is way too cold to be outside but from the window the snow glistens in the sunlight and there is a peaceful stillness. Winter storm Hercules is long gone and we are warm and cozy inside. Hope you enjoyed the photos! Life is good.
As Always...Happy Gardening!
