It's that time of year

After a rather nice autumn, winter hit the midlands this past weekend.  We ended up with about four inches of snow on the ground, which really isn't too bad.  However, the cold snap behind the snow will leave us with sub-freezing conditions for the next week.  This means the white stuff will hang around for a while, maybe until Christmas????

The first snow is always a treat.  When we were younger, we loved to go outside in the first snow.  Now that I am older, I love to go outside in the first snow - only now it is with my camera.

Here are a few more photos of the snow.
