A Blanket of Snow
It often seems like we get extreme weather on New Year's Eve. Ice storms, freezing rain, snow. Last night was no exception -- we accumulated about 8 or 10 inches of snow in a 6 hour period.
It started out as very wet snow and clung to everything -- trees, power lines, the grape vines. The snow came down quickly and mounded on every surface like frosting. It's a Christmas-card-fairy-land outside.
