A view of Spokane looking north; snowclouds hang low over the city.
Winter finally arrived in earnest after several weeks of flirting with cool weather and scattering snow showers mixed with rain. Yesterday evening, the first real snow storm befell us, followed by a sudden drop in temperature. An angry wind screamed from the east, biting through my clothes to my skin beneath. Winter finally arrived in all her fury.
These branches remind me of a freezing claw reaching out from the sky.
The pond at Manito Park froze over. Someone threw rocks onto the surface of the water, where they remain.
