Snow Had Fallen, Snow On Snow...

Yesterday, we had our second winter storm in three days ~ did someone say that it is not officially winter until Sunday?

The weather was appalling ~ I came home from the train on foot with horizontal snow blowing in my face: in these conditions, it was like being stung all over. What with my hat and hood; my scarf and the collar of my jacket zippered up to my chin; I could barely see where I was going. This is the reality of a white Christmas!

Today dawned bright and cold. The current temperature is -16C and the wind chill is -24C. Even bundled up to the eyeballs, I didn't want to spend long outdoors.

The sight of the sunlight on the crisp blanket of snow is breathtaking.

We are on another winter storm watch ~ our third storm is expected tonight ~ and yet another storm is forecast for Tuesday!

I love this photograph of the snow on the evergreens and the lantern. Now that I am back indoors, I can really appreciate it!
