This is a really dark picture of the crabapple tree next door, covered in snow. I'll get a better picture tomorrow, I hope. I have been researching kitties, but they aren't talking to me right now, so I thought I would just do a regular blog entry, just for a change.
When I got up Sunday morning, it was drizzling rain. This is highly unusual in January. My town is at a bit over 7,000 feet and we always get snow or sleet in January. Anyway, it drizzled all day, making the skiers very unhappy. This year, for the first time in about five years, we had a nice early snow for a good base and now the drizzling rain was ruining it. From 7 to 9 pm the drizzle slowly changed to freezing rain, then snow. It snowed all night and all day Monday, finally ending about 7 pm. We got about four inches, by my estimation. Now the skiers are happy again and so am I. We really need the moisture. It is nice fluffy snow and it's beautiful.
