Entirely apropos of nothing, here are some pictures I took at sunset this afternoon just before the old and tired camera I found ran out of batteries. The snow fell on Sunday and Monday and has frozen into a sort of soft, frosty, crunchy floor that swallows your feet if you try to step in it (protip: don’t try that in slippers).
Update: Found two more on the camera’s memory card that I somehow missed! Excitement!!!
We very rarely get snow in December in this part of the world – this is the first time in at least a decade. And it doesn’t usually lie long enough and cold enough to get into this odd frozen pristine-ness. Very pretty, very magical, very very cold!
(Pretence at relevance: Boy it sure would be nice to be able to drop some fire totems about now huh.)
Has anyone else been having a snowy December? I know the eastern US seaboard and western Europe has been seeing some pretty crazy snow storms. I wonder if they’ve been able to be enjoyed despite the chaos they’ve caused.
