Snow!

Well, after a record-setting 288 days without measurable snowfall, Milwaukee finally saw some flakes today. 

Below is a photo taken about 1:30 p.m., when I left my office to get some lunch.  The tree branches were just beginning to acquire their white, lacy coating of snow.

By early evening, it actually looked like winter in my neighborhood.

I guess it’s time for everyone to break out the snow shovels and relearn winter driving skills.  How quickly the weather can change, with an even bigger storm headed our way tomorrow night and on through Thursday. 

Stay safe, and enjoy!

  1. I just love that second picture! That light is most spiritual, with a car (our busy lives?) rushing toward it, while the rest of the scene waits in peace. Amazing!
