When I was a child I remember weeks of snow covered ground and icicles as long as my arm hanging from windowsills. Granted my perception of time may be off and I had shorter arms back then, but we did experience snow for longer and more often. Temperature has risen here but we do still get a light dusting of snow most years as well as the occational deep freezes from Siberia.
This week we had our first snow of the year. It lasted for a good six hours with enough to make a small snowman. Unfortunately, the snow didn’t last and it had gone a day later. Although it didn’t last it was fun while it lasted, you never know, we might get some more before spring arrives.
