Normally, when we have freezing rain, it gets warmer the next day and all the ice melts away. Not this time, today it got colder (much colder, it's down to 16 F, -9C).
In between lake effect snow, sometimes the sun would come out, turning the landscape into a sparkling, almost blinding wonderland.
When the wind blows even just a little bit, all you can hear is the ice creaking and branches knocking together.
From the weather forecasts, it looks like winter has finally arrived. There is snow in the forecast every day for the next 10 days or so. I guess I'd better get knitting on some mittens!
