Winter Solstice: Second Snow of Season

Second snow of the season came yesterday, on the night of Winter Solstice. Currently cold, 20 degrees Fahrenheit, high today at 21F, low at 3F, winds NNW at 10-20 mph, occasional flurries. Humidity 78%, dew point 16F Sunrise 7:40 am, Sunset 5 pm. Moon 77% full, waning gibbous.

Hopefully by tomorrow they will have plowed the roads out here so we can get to work. It looks like about 6 inches or so fell here with drifts at the house to 2 feet. That means the open prairie roads have even bigger drifts, several feet deep. That takes a while to dig out. At least in Montana we have more snowplows… out here in rural Kansas, we are low on plowing priorities…
