Yesterday it was cold and rainy there was just shy of 1/2" in the rain gauge by late afternoon. Sprinkles persisted, but around 8:30 last night heavy wet snowflakes started flying in the cold North wind. Temps this morning in the mid 20s and I had to shovel almost 3" of ice-encrusted snow off the deck to get to the bird feeders this morning.
Ah well, a temporary setback, I'm sure. Gotta admit, it's very pretty out there (unless you ask the robins - they seem a little annoyed).
