Last night winter left a thin crust of snow and ice over my woodland paths, as well as crystalline patches on the road and lawn. The sun was bright this morning, and I walked outside to dutifully record evidence of frigid temperatures and the first bit of snow we have had this year.
Are you cold yet? After I took all these photos, I was happy to come inside for a cup of hot coffee! We need these cold temperatures, but soon I will be looking forward to spring.
