A friend came over for a visit today and as we were all sitting around having coffee and cookies, my jaw dropped. The ladies looked at me and asked what I was staring at: snow. There was a fine mist of hail coming down.
The air had been extra frosty all day, when I went out for my lunch smoke, I couldn’t tell if I was smoking or just had steamy breath. Sure enough it started to snow around 13:00. Made for a fine visiting with company fire, and a good excuse to get the new wood stove fired up.
Snowing outside, good company inside, everybody gathered around a roaring fire; you would think it was Christmas.
