First Snow of the Season

21 11 2010

Despite the forecast predicting snow overnight, when I opened the blinds this morning there was none to be seen.  Shame.

That soon changed.  While waiting for the kettle to boil I was gazing wistfully out of the kitchen window hoping there’d eventually be snow.  Wish granted.

Right before my eyes a snow flake drifted past the window, then another, and another, all small and fragile, but steadily as I watched the flakes got larger and started falling heavier.  Unfortunately it’s not quite cold enough for the snow to accumulate so it all melted, but at least it snowed, and there’s still more expected.

I videoed a little of the view from our front door to share with you.
