A bit of snow

There was enough overnight to cover the hills around here, but down in Murphy there was only a sprinkling. And, although it's not getting above freezing today it isn't lasting.

during (around midnight),
and after, a Towhee searches for fallen seed.

It's always a surprise when winter exposes the new houses on the ridgetops; even more so when snow sets them off. This one was built this summer but we have only recently been seeing a strong light (a friend calls them 'insecurity lights') on the hill, and the outline of a house where we never saw anything but trees before. Wish we could turn back the clock......or that ridgetop homeowners would at least cut less trees and use smaller lights.
