Winter came today. 10 centimeters of the white stuff flew down this morning, coating the trees, houses and roads.
We even got our first snow day from work. It was coming down heavy at noon when the notice came out. Freezing rain to follow, get home before the roads turn to ice.
|I have never been able to identify this antique cast iron piece. |
Regardless, it makes a fantastic container for festive winter greens.
I don't need to be told twice. There's nothing I hate more than driving 25 kms through a snow storm to get home. Especially when conditions are 'slippy'.
And it turned out to be a great afternoon to get started on that Christmas baking.
