Snow Day

Snow in Virginia Beach. (Rebel) (Click all pictures to enlarge) Posted by Picasa
"The present never ages. Each moment is like a snowflake, unique, unspoiled, unrepeatable, and can be appreciated in its surprising-ness." ~ Gail Sheehy
YES, we had snow today. No, really!! We had snow today! You can see it in the picture above. Yes, those are really flakes and it came down for at least an hour, honestly it did.

It didn't accumulate, but the snowflakes, moderate in size, tried to stick to the holly leaves. I'm sure the flakes would have looked beautiful coating the branches and leaves.

But soon, it changed over to ice and then into rain. See the ice on the small spider web? Really, that IS ice! Now it is simply raining; the day is gray and dark with cold, cold rain!

Even the mockingbirds took shelter from the snow and ice. So how was the first day of February in your neck of the woods?
