For some reason, I was the only one in our household who was not taken by surprise by today's rain-freezing rain-snow event. Even the driveway plowing company was caught unprepared! Despite the treacherous roads - which I didn't have to drive on - it was beautiful outside, and I managed to snap these pictures about an hour before sunset.
The weatherman said that we can expect the cold temperatures and snow to stay with us for the next two or three weeks, so it looks like we have a good chance of having our annual Stokoe Farm visit authenticated by snow. Yippee!
