Dusty Winter White
The first winter white of the season showed itself here in my neck of the woods today.
Fortunately, the snowflakes did not fall heavily enough here in Canal Winchester, Ohio, USA to even be considered a real dusting. Nonetheless, temperatures dropped throughout the day and are expected to reach a low of ten degrees well into the night.
My dog Valentino and I took our final walk of the day at around seven-thirty this evening. We both bundled up in warm winter-wear for our neighborhood walk, for as we headed out the temperature was about twenty-five degrees, with a "feels like" temp of seventeen. Brrr!
I captured the frosty feeling in a picture and a dog poem entitled "Dusty Winter White" for your viewing pleasure ... Enjoy!
