It started early this morning . . .
. . . and it's still coming down.
The snow has been intermittent most of the day but is supposed to pick up in intensity through the night and continue throughout the weekend. To say Michiganders are less than excited about the onset of winter is a gross understatement. As a matter of fact, one of Harry's nieces refuses to even acknowledge winter is here :) And I can appreciate their feelings. Last winter was pretty brutal and in the interest of full disclosure~~I was not here to experience it. But having confessed to that, there is something serene and very pretty about the first snowfall of the season. As I drove around this morning going about my usual routine, I stopped along the way and shot a few pictures.
Once the snow began to fall, I made sure all my bird feeders were full. Most of the little song birds and the woodpeckers don't migrate; and once the snow falls heavy and blankets everything, it's hard for them to find food.
