More Snow and More Cold

A Frozen Tennis Ball...
Ice, Snow and Cold!

We have now sunk into the coldest period in a few years, with a bit more snow yesterday afternoon. Fortunately it cleared up overnight, and, while still in the 20's, the sun is out!

Even though her ball is frozen, The Lils had a strong desire to chase it, roll over it, and generally attempt to assemble it somehow onto/into her body.

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.
