We woke to the first snowfall of the year. It was a magical scene of big fluffy wet snowflakes, falling straight down with no wind. A couple of hours later it stopped, sun has come out and most has melted, but I did go out for pictures in spite of the wet and cold, actually not as cold as yesterday’s wind. The field next door has a mist rising from it as the sun warms it.
They’ve painted the bottom part of the dome with white waterproofing paint, so the only snow is on the top. It is warm inside, so this shows how well insulated the building is to catch snow so easily.
Even the construction debris and mud look good with a cover of snow.
We’ve even had a pair of towhees visiting the feeder today. They are very handsome birds, but I was not able to get a picture.
