The weather guy on the morning show is using the word squall.
Not here, not so far, this Monday morning in the backyard of our Little Bitty in the Syracuse city neighborhood of Eastwood.
As I let Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle out to greet our first snow of the season, there was no wind whistling nor heavy white sheet in the air. A gentle blanket lay on the lawn to greet our beloved rescue mutt for her morning sniff.
The sun rose to meet its challenge of Thanksgiving week. That weather guy said the high today will be 37, coldest so far as we head toward winter 2015-16.
There may be a little more snow Tuesday, he said, but warmer weather will return for those traveling for the holiday. We’ll be staying home for turkey and the younger generation right here.
Up front, our new cherry tree proudly met its namesake for the first time. Snow Fountain, I believe it said on the tag this spring as we put it into the ground. Cherry Cherry is what we named her after asking you all here to chime in. She looks good in white.
Have you tasted your first snow yet, and if so, how much? What do you usually do for the first snow? What do you usually do for the second snow?
