Winter Crossing

It’s winter now, but not for long. Snow has fallen and melted away, and many think it will not snow again. Daylight Savings Time started today. It arrives earlier each year it seems to me. This time it is an entire week before the spring equinox.

Our winter this year was mild, too mild. Usually the ground stays white throughout the season. But this winter we would have a few inches of snow and it would all melt away to the soft brown earth before it would snow a few more inches and then melt again. Boots needed through the snow or the mud.

The scarf and gloves are still out, no trust yet has been granted to the change of season despite that it’s sunny and warm today, and when you’re out of the wind it almost feels like 70 degrees.  Here at least are few winter images.
