These are actually from a week and a half ago, and were taken by Dan on his morning walk. I think I’ve documented the first snow of the last few years; it seemed a shame to miss this year, since it was such a spectacular arrival. There was nothing when darkness fell the night before, but at least three inches of the white stuff by the time dawn arrived.
Unrelated: the book tour is filling up fast. Thanks to everyone who’s either contacted me or passed on the info to groups in your area! I’m still open to potential dates in southern Michigan, Virginia and/or Delaware if you live in these areas or know a possible nature center or organization that might be interested in hosting an event.
