A Most Spectacular New Year's Day

This post is a picture overload, but I was just overwhelmed on Sunday morning by the beauty of all that snow that came down on New Year's Eve.  We were teased by a bit of a colourful sunrise, and blue skies a bit later, but it never really did clear up. I was measuring snow on the deck just outside the back door, but as we slogged around doing the morning chores, it seemed more like 8-10 inches, and not just the 7 inches I measured on the deck.  
And funny, as I type this, the news is on the TV, and I just watched the weather forecast.  Abbotsford supposedly got 12cm of snow, which is about 5 inches.  Ha, certainly more than that in this section of town.

And this one is my favourite!!

The forecast for the next few days is for sunshine and temperatures around freezing during the day, and below freezing at night.  I don't think this snow is going anywhere fast.  More snow predicted for the end of the week.
The last winter that has been comparible to this one was eight years ago when we adopted Luna.
I suppose we are due.
