It's Cold... Finally.

Winter weather was slow in coming; December and January were mild. Snowfalls have been light. And even last week we had afternoons in which we could walk outdoors without a sweater. But last night the temperature dropped into the teens and the wind blew and blew. Today the wind let up but the temperature stayed below freezing.

These are pictures I took from our living room windows yesterday.
