It is now the evening of Boxing Day (December 26, 2012) and we are currently in the middle of a very heavy snowstorm. I opened the balcony door, stuck the camera outside in the cold and snapped this picture.
You can just see the balcony railing - despite the snow pouring down. There is at least an inch or two of snow on the ground already.
This is the first decent snow we have had in the last 4 years.
If there is any snow on the ground in the morning, my son wants to go out and play. I will take some more photos.
