The recent unpleasant combination of snow and ice was forecast to be on the way out. Yesterday the temperatures stayed above freezing, and the forecast for today was similar, with perhaps a few showers and maybe a bit of snow. Looking out his morning, the remaining snow was patchy, with every likelihood that the roads would be passable and relatively safe.
Then, a snowfall lasting just an hour or so, changed the scene completely. So perhaps no French class today, no shopping trip, and my glasses will have to stay where I left them at a friends' house, for a bit longer.
It looks pretty enough, but snow is also ordinary weather, normally expected at some point during Winter. So why does it mess things up so much?
One of our local squirrels seems to be confused by the weather too. It was out foraging this morning. In this weather? So I put out some nuts, maybe it will find them.
