It Looks Like Winter Has Finally Arrived.

Today is the first day of December and here in Minnesota we woke up to fresh snow on the ground. This is not the first snow that we have see so far this year. We did have one small snow storm in November but then it warmed up and all of the snow melted. I don't think that we are going to get that lucky this time. According to the latest weather forecast the temps for the next week will be lucky to get above freezing for the high. We are also supposed to get more snow today and possibly some on Saturday. Oh well, I did not really expect winter to hold off for too long, after all it is December in Minnesota, but one can dream can't they? This photo was taken on the North Shore of Lake Superior last winter.

This is one of the prettiest Skywatch Friday photos I have seen. It is a magical one in its beauty. The show on the curving shoreline is just too pretty for words. It does look cold. Maybe I need to stop complaining about the cold here in VA.genie
