Somewhat like Lisa of The Creative Exchange, I want snow this time of year....and I'll be tired of it if it hangs around too long! Last year, we had real snow in mid-November that hung around until late spring. This year, we had a snow storm in early November, but when rain and wind took it away, the dry cold moved in. The only snow is in the mountains (where my husband prefers it to stay), but we're having below-freezing temperatures daily. Just over the mountains in the Walla Walla Valley, there has been a temperature inversion. Heavy wet fog, a common occurrence in that area, rolled in one day and temperatures dropped into the 20's, where it stayed. The result was amazing. Hoarfrost covered every stationary surface with a thick layer of white crystals. My husband humored me with what I called a Christmas shopping trip, although almost all my shopping is complete. I really wanted to use my new camera and I wasn't disappointed.
