For the first time in several attempts, the weatherman's prediction of snow was correct. At least in fact, if not in quantity. We had a small amount of thick wet snow overnight, that is even now melting away, due to the warm ground beneath.

No matter. It is pleasing to look at and not any inconvenience at all. The big news is that, after five days of rain and more days than that of overcast, the skies today are clear, blue, and the sun is finally out.
