We expected rain overnight. Waking to the morning light reflecting off the snow was a bit of a surprise.
Very quickly the early morning's grey skies were replaced with blue skies and sunshine.
The view to the west was lovely and the promise of a sunny day encouraged us to leave the snow on the ramp to the kitchen door instead of clearing it. I carefully made my way down the ramp to the car. When we returned home at lunchtime every trace of snow was gone. It looked pretty, but I can't say I'm sorry it melted. I love snow for Christmas, but let's not rush it!
