Winter, finally

capital hills leap day snow

Capital Hills in Albany, at the back of the old course.

This procrastinating winter got lucky -- if this wasn't a leap year, it would have totally blown the deadline for getting a respectable snowfall in before the end of February.

The official snowfall total for Wednesday was 4 inches (it sounds like a lot places got more than that), a record for the date -- of course, there aren't that many February 29s on record. [NWS]

There's another 4 inches or so in the forecast for Thursday.

I love that photograph! While I always love the photos on AOA, this one really hit the spot today.

I can't say that I welcome the snow, but my snow tires are happy to have something other than clear road... ;) I suppose it had to happen sometime... =D

Beautiful photograph. Thanks AOA.

I am so very thankful for the wonderful people who wandered in and out of my life over the last few years. They have given me the love and support I need to survive and thrive. Last year at this time I was at my lowest. By the grace of all that is good in my life, I have climbed out and I'm happier than I've been in a very, very long time.
