The First Snowfall of the Winter!

A foot of snow...who would have guessed? Even for Iowa, that's a little much for the first snowfall of the year, but hey, who's complaining? The snow started to fall just as we were finishing up winterizing our farm. All the young fruit trees, blackberries, strawberries, and tender garden plants have been tucked in for the winter. Ready or not, welcome to winter!

Oh the first snowfall of the winter
Was a day that we all waited for
When it drifted to and fro
Why you should've seen the snow
It was near seven feet or more
By the old barn door
Oh the first snowfall of the winter
What a joy for a boy to behold
In each house you'll find a sleigh
That was waiting for this day
And of course, down the road a hill
For each Jack and Jill
