|Yucca in the Snow|
The first snow is exciting, and it has come as early as November BUT today, Monday, Dec. 5, we received our first significant, ground-covering snow in north central Arkansas.
It was somewhat surprise, even though some weather reports across the northern state line had it in the forecast. We live slightly south of the state line.

And Bushes By Surprise
It sleeted all the way to the physician's office which is in a town east of my little 'burb.' He drove under the canopy so I could disembark, and then parked in a handicap space, waiting for my return. YES I have a handicap plate.
I was called into the exam room rather quickly. Last I looked out the weather appeared to be the same and H was smoking outside the car.
This was a full checkup, glacoma check, refraction, and exam by physician. All was stable except some membrane affected by my cataract surgery is slightly clouded and may require laser surgery later, or sooner if it bothers me. I made up my mind it ain't gonna bother me. I don't need any more medical procedures than I already face.
After checking out for at least 6 months I hope, I wrapped up tight, especially my head as I am combating a sinus infection, I headed out the door at 10 a.m..
LO! and Behold! The whole world had turned white in an hour. As we headed home some roads were nearly covered, and the landscape became whiter and whiter.

It seems like a day to be cozy, read, catch up on reading and writing blogs, drink decaf coffee, and complete a few minor household duties--which is mostly what I contentedly am doing.
And if this hangs around (current weather report does not support this) I might decide to cook something--not a chore I enjoy.
Fortunately I have some home-made Chicken Noodle Soup frozen, which sounded just right for tonight...and meets my WW criteria as I know what's in it.
After arriving home I grabbed ye ole camera and snapped a few pictures to share with you.
