January 7 snowfall January 8, 2022

The first measurable snowfall of the season fell Friday morning, exactly five years to the date of the first measurable snowfall of that winter. I’m not sure when it started this time, but I know it ended around 9:00.

The initial forecast earlier in the week called for a rain/snow mix, but I’ve learned to expect a colder and snowier forecast as the event approaches. That’s what happened here. Thursday’s winter weather advisory called for 3 to 5 inches, then 2 to 4. 8 inches fell (one less than five years ago), at least on our lawn. I measured 5 inches in the driveway, which was resurfaced in August. With air temperatures around the freezing mark (32 degrees Fahrenheit), snow was more wet than powdery, at least by the time I woke up. My friend Jeff Jensen noted it was powdery at the onset. Seeing snow clumped on the trees and bushes misled me.

What follows is the usual photographic timeline from my first photo of the day through the last. We begin at 6:35 AM:

No more snow is expected for a while. The next time more than two inches falls, I’ll post about it. Until then, thanks for reading.

1/11 UPDATE: Jinx. Another round of snow is possible this weekend.
