Our first snow of the year

Friday night we got our first snow of the season. It started snowing (mostly flurries) when I was on my way to work that night. It snowed a little more and a little more all night long, and when I finally got off work I had to remove an inch of snow from my car. But the temperature was right about freezing, so the roads weren't too bad. I just avoided the freeway and took surface streets home to avoid elevated roadways. The snow was so pretty as it was coming down in my headlights at 1 a.m.

I took these pictures when I got home. The little garden near the front door, the boxwoods in front of the house (a little more protected since they are on the north side of the house), and the large maple tree out front. In that shot you can even see some of the snowflakes. It really was pretty, but was melted by 10 or 11 the next morning.
