Arrival of Winter


Usually, winter weather arrives in November. But, here it is approaching mid December, and the weather is just turning cold. Cold enough to threaten snow. Maybe tonight.

Just another routine of winter

The silence of the snow falling is interrupted by the sound of the snow shovel. Scraaaaap, swoosh. Scraaaaaap, swoosh. Crossing the drive back and forth and clearing a path on the sidewalk until the layer of snow has been removed. Boots stomp on the garage floor, shaking off clinging snow and then the garage door descends closing out another episode of the routine of winter.
