Cold December:First snow, barely

December's here. So far it has been pretty cold early with an overcast most days. Sunday, we had our first snow. Not much. A dusting of the roads and the unraked leaves. Funny, how more of the snow stuck on the roads than anywhere else. Sure we had flurries before but they hadn't stuck around.

Sunday was made even colder by the power going off. Several hours, maybe a stretch but a good three hours. Turned my house pretty cold in a hurry. The electric heaters can't run without power. With no heat, nothing warms the sub freezing air as it seeps into the house. The house starts to act as a refrigerator as the cold air flows below and over the house.

So, much for a shower. So, much for heading out.
