We got 4-6 inches of snow yesterday and last night!

We woke up on Saturday morning to find three to five inches of snow on the ground. Cisco had a field day.

Finally, we’re starting to get freezing temperatures at night. Had to leave a faucet dripping last night – good thing, too, everything was frozen this morning:

The car door was frozen shut!

Spotted a rainbow on the way home from Thanksgiving with Mom yesterday:

Then this morning, we were treated to a winter wonderland!

Cisco was so tired after the big day yesterday. Here he is sleeping with his blue squeaky bone as a pillow.

After three solid days of rain / sleet / snow, the skies are finally clearing. Which meant sub-freezing temperatures last night. Got up in the night and left a faucet dripping just in case. Out at 7am to walk Cisco, I noticed this lovely swirling frost effect on the hood of the truck:

The nectarine tree is blossoming, so I took the opportunity to trim a few unruly low-hanging branches:

Later in the day, Rich took Cisco outside for some romping around.

Gracie ventured outside, too:

It’s been so cold, even Gracie has transformed into “Winter Cat.” She actually let Rich cover her with a blanket last night:

Pretty much unprecedented.

Got down to 22 overnight. We had ice on the inside of the windows, and these indoor icicles freezing the windows shut:

Not that we were planning on opening them anyway.

That we know of, anyway. We got around 2-4 inches overnight last night.

Cisco took it in stride.

He didn’t go insane with excitement, but he handled it very well.

 

 

Woke up to some serious frost this morning, then realized it was also some snow! After the frost melted, actual snow remained:

Then later this morning we got some big fluffy flakes;

Love love love it.

Got pictures of some daffodils just beginning to bloom:

Had a snowstorm Thursday night, all day Friday, all Friday night, and into half of Saturday. Some snow-laden pines:

It was SO nice to have it snow all day Friday, so we could enjoy watching it. Too often, it all happens overnight. First we went out walking in it, then I made onion marmalade, then we played Scrabble, then I took a hot bath. In other words, a perfect day. This was what Friday was like all day:
