Snow!

Snow beginning to stick

Snow beginning to stick

As dusk falls, snow has coated one side of the giant oak trunk. It could be an illustration out of a children’s book.

It’s been snowing on and off for hours, mostly in near-horizontal billowing gusts.

It started settling on the windward windowsills some time ago, but is only just now settling on the ground.

There’s a waterfall-freshness about the air and a hallowed quiet disturbed only by the wind.

I’m giving myself away, now. I absolutely love snow.

      Thank you. That’s very kind of you. The snow didn’t thicken, and despite another snowstorm this morning, has all but disappeared. But the soil is cold – my, how cold. I tried to pull up a few weeds and my fingers were frozen in seconds!
