(By the way, I don't know why it has those sort of oil painting smears. I didn't do anything to the pictures.)
At any rate, it lived up to its threat. A little later as I came out of a store the air was filled with snow pellets, b.b. sized dry pellets. I quickly learned that my fancy new car with all the bells and whistles does NOT have a rear window wiper. But thankfully it does have a defroster.
The skies threatened most of the day and the temperature hung in the upper 30's/lower 40's. I talked to one young woman at the pharmacy who said she had grown up here but she didn't like the cold, snowy weather. "I wish it was summer again," she said.
