Winter creeps into Siouxland, Storm Lake

25 Nov

Even though some snow has already fallen in the Siouxland area, winter feels like it is still creeping into the area. And that’s okay. Summer-like aspects are still hanging on, like dandelions.

Recently rain has come into the area, and to me, if I don’t have to scoop precipitation, all the better. Even two inches of rain would make a similar snowfall a lot of work. But winter is coming and I try to enjoy what’s present and wait, since one can’t really change Mother Nature’s cycle.
