Yaay, first snow! πŸ˜„
I know nobody cares but me, but I love posting this every year. Autumn is my favourite season and winter is a close second. And it’s so dark up here now that the snow is actually a big help. It’s so much brighter with white ground when there’s no sun. Winter is coming and I’m here for it!

This year, the first snow fell on the evening of October 8th. ❄ It was too damn dark to take decent photos, but I did film a very grainy video:

Luckily the snow stayed throughout the next day, so I got some beautiful frosty pictures on my morning walk:

It’s still snowing off and on, but it’s not staying more than a day or two before melting away again. The temperature is hovering around 0, so it’s back and forth between freezing and thawing. Most trees still have most of their leaves, but they’re falling FAST. The rowan tree in my yard is completely bare already. Only the berries remain. Any day now all trees will be bare – save for the evergreens of course.

They said on the news we’re having our coldest autumn in 40 years. I don’t doubt it, I have noticed it’s unusually cold. The summer was unusually cold too actually. But I hope this means we’ll have even more snow soon, and that it will come to stay. We have put the winter tyres on the car, so we’re ready. β˜ƒπŸ˜Š

How do you feel about winter? Does it snow at all where you are?
