Homer's Travels: Finally … The First Snow

Finally … The First Snow

We finally got our first real snow overnight.  We got maybe one inch.  The driveway and sidewalks were mostly clear as most of the snow melted on contact leaving only the snow on the grass as evidence that it really happened.  The temperatures later today and tomorrow guarantee that it will be all gone by the end of the weekend.

The first snow of winter 2021.

This winter (I know … winter doesn't officially start until the 21st) has been odd.  We usually get our first significant snow in November.  We've even had a couple first snows in mid-October.  This year the temperatures have been warmer than normal and there've only been two or three really cold days so far.  The winter is feeling more like an extended fall.

To make it all worse, it is supposed to set a record by going above 70℉ (21℃) this Wednesday with record high temperatures on Tuesday as well.  Crazy.  Just crazy.
