Winter weather has solidly set in earlier than usual here. We experienced a range of winter precipitation all day yesterday, from freezing rain and sleet to snow. I was snowed in most of the day, too wary to brave my steep S-shaped driveway covered in a layer of ice and snow. It sounds like it was for the best because the rest of the neighborhood was busy competing in the new holiday decoration contest we’re now calling “Cars in Yards.” One tow truck even got stuck in a yard while trying to tow out the car that was already there.
When all was said and done, I think that we had at least six or more inches of fresh snow on the ground. At this rate, we can probably count on a white Christmas this year.
