Every fall, I impatiently await the first frost of the season. This past Monday, a light frost finally! appeared on the rooftops of the houses in my neighborhood. Leaves and grass in open areas also got a layer of my favorite white substance.
Please do me a favor and pretend the leaf with the frosted veins is in focus! Smarty kept pulling on my hand….
I was amazed by the swirling pattern of frost on the cars down the street…and a little jealous that my car didn’t get decorated by frost.
Frosty is my favorite weather! I like snow but we so rarely get it and, when we do, it’s almost always wet, slushy and melts within a few hours, which is totally depressing. Plus, frost occurs on sunny days and often comes along with beautiful, magical winter sunrises. I love watching my little window of sky grow lighter, brighter and more colorful against the silhouette of the birch tree in my back yard.
We had another light frost yesterday morning and it looks like some clear, cold weather is coming. I’m so excited! As far as I’m concerned, the colder and frostier the better.
I’m ready for overnight lows in the 20’s!
I hope my ancient furnace is ready too.
