It was a roller coaster of a winter heading into 2012. A large snowstorm hit the day before Halloween, then another the night before Thanksgiving. Below are some photographs from the snow we got at Thanksgiving. It sure made things feel cozy and festive.
The snow melted away again and it was pretty mild until we got into January. Even now as I write this we're at 40 degrees and rain - all the ice and snow are shrinking away, but I'm sure there will be more. You can tell the animals wish it would just do one thing and stick to it for a few months. Weather at 10 degrees or weather at 37 degrees, but not both, and not within 24 hours of itself. Roller coaster indeed.
