The First "Real" Snow of the Season

 

Winter in New Fairfield, CTThis morning, we in New Fairfield, Connecticut, finally woke up to our first "real" snow of the winter season.

Sure, we've had two other recent snow storms, but they were mostly mixed with sleet and freezing rain.  This morning we awoke to nearly 5 inches of soft, white, fluffy snow.  No sleet mixed in.  No freezing rain mixed in.  Just beautiful, white snow.

The trees were covered.  The lawns were covered.  And the kids finally got to go outside and play in the snow!  Of course, schools were closed, so I just had to go out to play in the snow with them.  I couldn't let them be out there all alone...what fun would that be for my boys?

 

Winter in New Fairfield, ConnecticutToday was grey.  The skies were grey.  Even the snow-covered trees looked grey, as you can see by these photos I took in my yard.  But it was beautiful.  It was winter in New England.  It was something we've been missing.

Here in Connecticut, we're about to set the record for the least amount of snow in a winter season.  I don't think today's storm has put us over the top yet.  But, we're expecting another inch overnight, and perhaps some more by the end of the week.  We'll see...
