Winter Comes to Our Backyard

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 11 December 2016 in Documentary & Street.

Late Thursday afternoon, the snow started falling. By the evening, about three inches (7.6 centimeters) had accumulated, in parts of the the backyard, in spite of the large fir trees catching a lot of it. It's been cold enough that a little is still around and more may fall this coming week. But, it usually disappears pretty fast around here.

Christmas is easy to läöytää you, because you have a beautifully lit path. Snowfall is an awesome thing, and light reflection from the snow tekaa into a stunning atmosphere.

It made a beautiful back yard while it lasted. The picture has great colored lights making it very attractive. Snow here last and lasts to become dirty snow. :-)
