First Snow!

We got our first real snowfall of the season last night, probably 6" I would guestimate.  Up til now we've only had a light dusting of snow, nothing more, never enough to cover the grass.  (At least not right in town - some of the outlying communities have gotten enough snow to cover the ground.)  However, it stopped just before midnight, the temperatures got above 0C, the main roads were cleared, and the kids had school.  Mine we quite mad they didn't get a storm day yet!

The garage had some funky snow happening on the roof this morning.  It has a metal roof, and the snow slid down both sides from the peak and just kind of cupped the gutters on each side.  It was the same way on both sides.

You can see the grooves in the snow from the ridges on the metal roofing.  It didn't stay that way long, about an hour after I took these pictures both overhanging sides fell off.  It was around +4C today and sunny, so half of the snow is melted already.

And some little kitty must have made a trek through the yard this morning. There are several cats in the neighborhood.

Happy knitting!

That snow slide is just awesome! We've got 1cm last night, not worth talking about.

We got some snow too - but not as much as you -just enough to make everything look pretty and cold.
