Winter came in overnight...

It was a beautiful day yesterday on many different scores.  First in the morning, I saw the white-headed bird that Dale had seen the other day.  

It was a leucistic house finch, and boy was I surprised to see it feeding yesterday morning.

Around noon time I headed over to Mountainair to meet Grace, a blogger I read that lives down near Socorro.  She was helping a friend move stuff out of a storage unit.   

I stopped in the town of Mountainair to check out a new, to me, bakery which had been open for seven months already.  I asked the woman waiting on me where she was from since she spoke with an accent.  I was surprised to find out that she was from Salvador, Bahia, Brazil.  I started speaking Portuguese with her, and we're going to get together so I can exercise my native language.
Later in the gorgeous afternoon I helped Dale install our weather station.   Little did we know that our beautiful sunset would result in such a different morning.


 This morning it is snowing, snowing, snowing.  It continues to snow, even though the sun is trying to make an attempt at shining.  We can sure use the moisture!
