The snow fell through the night. I had a glimpse of what was to come on the ride home. The snow was coming sideways at Curt's truck. It was coming fast and it was being carried by a strong wind.
In the morning, I woke up to a winter wonderland. In March. It was enough snow during the night to result in the closing of schools throughout the region. Truly, the saying was true. March came in like a lion, a roaring lion. Apparently, I missed the most dramatic part of the wild snowfall: the thunder snow. At some point during the night, there was a thunder storm, with lightning and thunder and... snow. Apparently, that is a rare weather phenomenon. Hmmm. I slept through a rare weather phenomenon. OK.
Well, let's hope that March leaves like a gentle lamb.
So... the return of winter. It's back after that lovely day (just three days ago), when I took a walk along the river and shared my photographs here. I took a shorter walk today, and here are some of the images of the wintry early March day.

|Today, the Niagara River is a metallic color, as opposed to the bright blue that it was on Tuesday afternoon.|
