We weren't at all surprised to see the ground white this morning. Thursday evening's rain turned into a half-inch snowfall overnight. Just enough to make area roads a tad slippery. Pheebs and I weren't long in getting ourselves out the door to see if we could find a few photos.

When moisture drops from the sky in our area it comes down either in the form of rain, sleet, graupel, or snow, and this morning it was graupel we were driving around in. Graupel is a form of soft hail. Every time I put Pheebs window down she got graupelized and every time I put my window down to take a picture I got graupelated too. The strong wind chill factor today drove the 32F temperature down to 19F.

Aside from shoveling a small amount of snow off our front deck, feeding the birds, re-arranging some front yard lights, and looking for some stuff in a shed, it was of course another quiet afternoon. I would sure be lost if I didn't have my Kindle books to read.

I took too many photos this morning to fit them all into one post so I will have to stretch them out over the next day or two. Although I am not a winter person it's always nice to see a change in the scenery even if it is a white landscape. As I type this tonight we have a snow squall warning in effect.

This duck walks into a convenience store and asks the clerk, "Do you have any grapes?" The clerk says no, and the duck leaves. The next day, the duck returns and asks, "Do you have any grapes?" The clerk again says no, and the duck leaves. The day after that, the duck walks in the store again and asks "Do you have any grapes?" The clerk screams at the duck, "You've come in here the past two days and asked if we had any grapes. I told you no every time that we don't have any grapes! I swear if you come back in here again, and ask for grapes, I'll nail your webbed feet to the floor!!" The duck left and returned the next day. This time he asked, "Do you have any nails?" The clerk replied, "No," and the duck said, "Good! Got any grapes?"
