Dusted

A dusting is what we got, but it’s resumed snowing and the wind is blowing.

Before it got light I heard the sound of a limb giving way somewhere, and returning from a sightseeing drive I saw a number of fresh pine boughs on the ground in the county right-of-way next to the road, so that may have been it.

I’m guessing the moisture feeding this snowfall is from the Gulf or the Atlantic, pulled all the way around the low pressure center and into the cold air being drawn down from Canada. It’s light enough to drive in but the wind persuaded me to head back to the barn.

No idea how much longer it’ll last, considering it wasn’t supposed to last this long in the first place.

No complaints -- since I’ve no place to go, I’ll sit here with my coffee and let it snow.
