What a fine surprise to look outside in the morning and find the landscape draped in a layer of white fluffy snow.  As snowflakes fell in northern Delaware, a normal November day transformed into a winter wonderland.

There is always a sense of magic in the air when the first snow of the season arrives.  With a fresh white canvas spread by Mother Nature, the earth looks a little cleaner and brighter.  Animals are easier to spot against a white background, like this deer I came across this morning.

How did you enjoy the first snow of the season?

Here’s hoping we have more snowy days to look forward to in the coming months!
