It's Official...First Snow of 2012

It's is just before 10:30 in the evening here in Downtown Mountaindale, NY and we have our first snow fall of 2012, the white stuff beginning to stick as the hamlet takes on an ethereal other world feel.  Not sure just how much we will get, but there is something magical about what it come down to the ground, each flake dazzling in the glare of the few street lights which brighten up our Main Street.

It has been a mild winter, temperatures almost balmy, even earlier in this day.  Now it is below the freezing mark, the earlier rain turned first to freezing rain, and then the white stuff that sees us huddling in our small places, a cup of fresh coffee keeping away the chill of the wintry night.

Welcome to winter everyone.
