Oh No! Winter Is Here!
I went to visit one of the nature parks today, and I found winter all around me. Obviously I was greeted with biting cold. That was no problem because I was well prepared. But I wasn't prepared for what was to greet me down at the lake.
The lake is frozen over! It has a complete covering of ice! It's still very thin, but it is indeed there. And if you take a closer look at this top picture, or especially click on it, you can see falling snow. Whether it's official or not, winter is really here, and there's nothing I can do about it.
It wasn't snowing yet when I was at the fishing platform, but I began to see a few snowflakes as I got about halfway to the back of the park. Even though other people have reported it a few days ago, it was the first snow I've seen this year.
I honestly have to say though that I'm not really that upset about it. This gives me a few new things to write about for a little while. It might seem to get old as time goes on, but for now it's actually kind of exciting. I wanted to capture the ice on this lake as early as possible. And I hoped to capture the first falling snow I saw. I accomplished it all in one day!
So now I know, winter is here.
