The snowflakes were light when they started here about 6pm.
These two pictures (above) were taken about 7:45pm.
The other three pictures were taken about 9:45pm. That's the big yard light outside making things look a little yellow. The snowflakes are bigger and wetter and the wind has started to blow, too.
The prediction for our neighborhood is between 7 and 9 inches of snow. If it keeps snowing at this rate (and the wind is supposed to be more fierce tomorrow), we may end up with more than 9 inches of the white stuff for Christmas!!
