We had the first snow of the season back on December 7th. This is fairly unusual. While it looks like quite a bit, here in the backyard, there was no snow on the roads. Let me repeat that: there was no snow on the roads. I went to the gym at 5:30 AM and had no problems whatsoever getting down our hill or back up. I doubt the people in Brockport would have even noticed that it had snowed. Here, however? It took me 2 hours to get to work. A normal day is 30-40 minutes. Unbelievable.
This is an heirloom tomato from our garden, which I pulled off the bushes while it was still green, in advance of the snow and freeze. Benjamin took this picture on December 21st. Yes, 4 days before Christmas we were eating a fresh tomato from our garden. Almost unbelievable, in an entirely different way.
Stay tuned - later this week I will have pictures from Christmas and from our New Year's Day hike.
