Just went out walking for an hour, and my ears ache from the cold wind. The clouds have come over and the rain will begin in another hour or two, I'm guessing. Then it will turn to snow.
All the blooming trees (including this crabapple) are at their peak. The snow won't hurt the trees themselves, or the perennials ... if they've survived this long, they're certainly used to it. But it's still a bummer.
I'm supposed to ski tomorrow, but that's going to depend on what the roads are like in the morning. I don't relish the thought of being stuck for hours behind a jackknifed semi.
