The weather service predicted snow overnight. Having been out to lunch in uncomfortably humid, mid-70s sunshine yesterday, I did not entirely believe them. Then the wind started whistling around the house.
Behold, what I woke up to:
Actual fluffy flakes rather than the usual coating of solid ice we usually get in winter! Awesome.
Which seems as good an excuse as any to link to pretty snowflake pictures, as captured by a snowflake photomicroscope.
ETA: More snow fell this afternoon, so we have fresh pictures, including the wee snowman Michael made on the back porch after dinner.
