Winter has decided to arrive, in my opinion, a little early this year. Yesterday morning we had our first minus temperature, a chilly -2C, which made getting out of bed to go to work very hard indeed. This morning, however, it was -4C and getting out of bed to go to the gym was almost damn near impossible. But I did it and the world rewarded me with a gorgeous frosty wonderland to walk to the gym through.
I snapped the following two photos on my way to the gym and marvelled at how gorgeous everything looked with a white coating and smiled happily at the blue sky and sunshine.
Then after I got back from the gym, the blue sky and sunshine went away to be replaced by grey clouds and the first snowfall of the season. The snow didn’t stick and quickly turned to sleet, but it was enough to truly let me know that winter is here. I’m wondering if minus temps and snowfall in October means that we are in for a long, harsh winter this year.
