* * * * SNOW * * * *

We have snow in Raleigh. The snow started falling lightly by midnight. When I woke up this morning around 7:30, it was snowing steady. Currently, little before 9am, it is snowing heavily ("puttin' it down" as we would say around here).

When I got up this morning around 7:30, this was the view from upstairs window (sky was still pale blue from early morning light):


A little after 8, here's a photo taken from upstairs looking toward the wooded patch behind my house:


From my front porch:


And a couple of shots from the patio door:




Forecast is that we'll have 3 to 4 inches by the time it stops around mid-day or early afternoon. Temperatures are currently low 20's and not supposed to get above freezing until tomorrow. Needless to say, I'm working from home today, and probably will be working from home tomorrow.
