The First Snowfall of the Season

November 8th, 2010

Friday evening, right before we went to bed, we noticed it was snowing. Usually our first snow fall doesn’t amount to anything, it melts off as soon as it falls. When we got up Saturday morning we were amazed that we had about a half inch of snow on the ground.

The first snow is always exciting. If it’s going to be cold outside I want to have snow on the ground. Snow really brightens things up during the long dark winter months in NE Ohio. The snow is also good for the garden as it provides a nice insulating layer for the plants and the soil.

Do you live in a climate where you get snow? Do you like snow or do you wish it didn’t fall?
