It seemed as though Winter would never get started, but yesterday I woke up to the first real snow of the season. The day before brought a wild all day rain and windstorm. However here on the hilltop only the the hints of what was happening down in the valleys was to be found.
Water was flowing in a ditch that is dry, unless it is the spring thaw. And low hanging braches skimmed the surface of large lawn puddles!!
