On this third day of the new year, we got our first snow for the year. Yes indeed.
It was a surprise because just a day before, we were in the low 60’s (Fahrenheit). Then, over night, the snow came and transformed our neighborhood into a winter wonderland. If it were a week earlier that would have been perfect for the Christmas holiday, just saying.
According to the forecast, Washington DC area got blanketed with 6 to 10 inches of the powdery snow. It came rather quickly in the middle of the night. Perhaps around 3 AM. It grew fierce into a white-out condition during the dawn hours. And by afternoon, the snow stopped.
From an efficiency point, it was a very good storm – 12 hours, and it was done. School kids and government employees also got an unexpected day off. With the the chilly temperature projected for tomorrow, this beautiful scenery will last a bit longer for us to enjoy. Maybe I will build a snowman tomorrow.
How is the weather for you in the New Year?
