Wind and snow

Our stretch of sunny dry and cold weather has come to an end and big fat flakes of snow have been falling on and off over the last couple of days.  At our altitude, it's been a boundary conditions between snow and rain, as it so often is, so very little is sticking here, but everything is sticking higher up.

It already feels like a much more typical winter than the arid ones of the past two years.  We've had ice on Josephine Lake where a shinny game broke out on the weekend, probably one of the few lakes in the lower mainland of BC where you can skate when the conditions are right.
