New Year's blizzard

At five this morning, there was a light dusting of snow on the ground.  The skies were dark blue-grey with a slightly brighter sliver along the eastern horizon.  The weatherman had forecasted five to twelve inches in the next 24 hours.  All doubts were set aside when the blizzard suddenly struck just before six. 
The storm varied between light flurries and white out conditions until around nine when it settled into those fluffy flakes that are good for snow-shoeing and skiing but little else.  There was about six inches down by ten.  Winter can be so beautiful.
