Finally! I have been waiting for the first snow to fall since I got here. I mean - in South Africa we do not really know snow. Especially not where I lived. There seems to be something magical (for me) about the first snow. And this year we got it in spades. It seems like the weather held back - even at Halloween we had no snow. But yesterday all that changed. Yesterday it started with sleet... At 18:00 this is how my back yard looked like:
This was the result of a full day of ice rain/wet snow. Not too impressive... So I went to bed and this morning, i.e. 14 hours later, this is how that same scene looked like:
Much better! It has been snowing non stop, and here are some more pictures from the same time this morning.
