It Is Beginning to Look a lot Like … Winter

Fortunately the worst of Winter Storm Draco, which passed through the midwest last night and this morning, missed us in Manhattan, Kansas; but we did receive our first snowfall of the year. Here are some pictures that I took this morning. It was quite cold, by the way – in the teens early on. Brrr …. I kept having to pop back in the house because my fingers were going numb and I couldn’t adjust the controls on my camera. I’m glad to be inside and warm again!

  1. As often happens the storm blew north of our region of the Appalachian Mountains. We had two days of wind and flurries blowing sideways. Today it cold but calm. Time for outside chores.

    • Hello, Oscar. You had a big snowfall during Sandy, didn’t you? It is supposed to turn quite cold here this week – highs in the teens. I don’t think that I’ll be doing many outdoor chores.

      • We had about 6 inches from Hurricane Sandy. However, when one of the weekenders e-mailed to check, we told them that it was 70*F in Cape Town, where we were at the time. The snow was gone by the time we returned home.

  2. Very pretty snow pictures. I especially like your red lantern one.

    We only had a dusting of snow from the same storm, with the heavier amounts to our north and east. Very cold nonetheless, with temps near zero early this morning. Stay warm. πŸ™‚
