Well, technically, it IS winter because it's January, and cold, and horribly dark in the late afternoon, but I can't recall having a single snowfall where we actually had accumulation. Not an inch. People are talking about El Nino and global warming and such; there were several 40-degree days last week! I dislike it because I enjoy seeing the crystal patterns in the snowflakes when they fall on my winter coat. That, and it just smells so much cleaner after a snowfall. Small things, admittedly. This winter has really been a long, chilly prelude to spring.
We did get ice today (click on the photo to enlarge).
It's just not the same.
