Snowy rotten apples

Our apple trees have been snow crusted for days now. Yesterday I noticed there were still some rotten apples hanging tightly from a branch there, apples with snow caps.

Sunny Christmas Day

Clear skies means colder days. Temperature dropped nearly 10 degrees C in one night, but as a result, we have had a beautifully sunny Christmas Day here. Now, at 2pm, the sun is slowly setting, after staying just above the horizon for some four to five hours or so. It will be dark in less than two hours.

Rainy December

Snow came and went. December has (so far) mostly been relatively warm and rainy. Today the sun came out though, like it did maybe once last week too. We have all of six hours of daylight currently, so the sun rises around 9AM and sets around 3PM.
