Okay, it was almost three days, but on the afternoon of January 29th, I was sitting on the porch in short sleeves. When I woke this morning, February 1, the wind chill was near zero.
It was so cold that I didn't want to open the front door in the icy pre-dawn haze, but since Mittsy wanted out on the porch to see what creatures might be visiting the back yard, I did venture onto the porch step to snap a picture of the snow-covered driveway. Someone had already tiptoed across the snow, but I didn't bother to go see who it was.
Winter has returned to the Valley, at least for the next few days.
