Snow- Yesterday and Today
This picture was taken at about 11 am yesterday. The mercury was hunkered down, but a soft blanket fell from the sky. A blanket about eight inches thick by the time it ended!
But look at this amazing situation! What's amazing is that this picture was taken this morning, and those are my snowshoe tracks from yesterday afternoon. The air was so calm that they were not smudged even a little bit by any hint of a breeze. That kind of calm is really unusual here.
The overnight low here was -10 degrees Fahrenheit. Our coldest of this year, but not even close to the coldest in Michigan. Several places in both the Upper and Lower Peninsulas were -30 or colder, and one unofficial reading was -41!
But look what a difference 24 hours makes. This was taken at 11 am today. It had warmed up to about 16 degrees above zero, and the sun was cheerful as Maggie and I took our walk.
Glynis has given me an award... I have to pick it up and share with you. I promise to show you something besides snow tomorrow (probably!)
