Snow Day

First Snowstorm of the Year

Yesterday's rain lasted all day and all night, raining steadily. It grew colder as well, and the weather radar showed snow all all around us, so it was not a surprise this morning to see the hills in all directions with a coating of snow.

I wasn't expecting any snow here in Fernley, but tonight we got a surprise.

Unfortunately, we still haven't had our chimney cleaned — Steve-the-Chimney-Sweep was supposed to come last Saturday but had to postpone. I was hoping to avoid having to set a fire until after he'd cleaned it, but if it stays cold much longer I will have no choice. Tonight's forecast is for -2° C and tomorrow will be colder, although the snow and rain should stop and it will warm up slightly for the rest of the week.
