White outside, dark inside

Today was the first big - really big - snowstorm of the winter. I had a couple of things I was going to pick up at the library. Couldn't of course. The library never opened, as I was pretty sure they wouldn't. In fact nearly anything that required leaving the house was out. But by now I know the signs, so I'm at least not particularly disappointed.

(Header explanation: White outside because of the snow, while a lot of places have the lights off because they're closed. Just in case you were wondering.)

I got the gist of your title pretty fast as we've had a similar event here this weekend. There was no snow on the ground on Friday and now we have more than a foot of the stuff. I love this part of the world most of the year, but winters are still not my favorite part.

We got a lot of snow last weekend. It stuck around for a couple of days, as Sunday and Monday were cold. Then Monday night it rained, and we had warm weather the next few days, and most of it thawed. The temperature dropped again for the weekend, but by then we had just a few patches. I don't mind winter, but it's different from how it used to be.
