We had the first prolonged snow flurry of the new year yesterday. It wasn’t much more than a long sneezing fit by Mother Nature, but it was enough to brighten the landscape without causing traffic troubles or making the grazing white-tailed deer dig deeper than their big noses.
Yesterday, most of the fishing vessels lay at their moorings while the constantly-prowling snow trucks salt-sanded and plowed the roads into slush:
There wasn’t enough snow to plow driveways and, by early this morning, things had brightened.
A thin frosting covered garden plants and fields.
The light snow posed no navigation or browsing problem for our resident White-Tailed Deer who were out for their morning walks.
