December arrived, pulling winter along by the hand. It snowed all day Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday, amounting in a solid 20 inches or more.
We plowed and shoveled, and shoveled, and shoveled, and plowed.
School was canceled Thursday, as most of our district's bus routes are rural roads that take a while to get cleared. And now the temps have plummeted well below zero & we find ourselves fully in winter mode.
While our kind of winters can be very much a toil, they sure are beautiful.
I went for a walk & took these photos after Day 1 of the storm. (It only looks like a dusting compared to what we have now.)
Today the snowshoes were brought out & a Christmas tree was found in the woods.. it's sitting outside our door waiting to come inside this evening.
'Tis the season for snow shoes & boots. Warm fires & good books (I'm currently reading a Tree Grows in Brooklyn.) Bread in the oven, & kids with rosy cheeks asking for hot cocoa. They revel in all this snow. A group of teenage boys put our spear fishing house out on the frozen lake this afternoon. And 'tis the season to get busy & ready for Christmas!
