After a couple of really mild winters, we're back to a "normal" winter in St. Louis, with alternating periods of warm and cold weather and snow. Temperatures over the last couple of days were in the mid-40's F, but forecast lows in the next few days could reach -5ºF (-20ºC) or lower.
It certainly has been a winter of contrasts so far, and what better way to illustrate that than with a series of high-contrast photos after an overnight snowfall.
The winter garden looks so much better with a bit of snow, doesn't it?
I like the snow, but I'd take a mild winter over "normal" any year!
At least it's pretty, right?
