From inside the kitchen, I watched this hawk. I believe he was staking out the bird feeders in the yard. He sat in the flying flakes for quite a while, motionless.

We’ve had a nice coating of freezing rain last night, and finally sno began this morning. I noted when walking to the mail box that there is two inch tall green grass, encased in diamond ice and sprinkled with white glitter.

Farther out, the pines begin to droop with the weight. A drape of icy branches tries to block the view.

Honestly, I’m happy to see some real snow for a change. The last couple of years it’s been sparse. It’s supposed to continue through tomorrow, I don’t have anywhere I must go. It’s all good!

I think there might be some snow ice cream in my future.
