Last Day of 2008 . . .

It's a crisp, cold day here, sunny and bright, but a little bit ago I looked out the window and it was snowing, a fine, glistening snow. It looked as if someone had shaken a container of glitter over the yard!
What a winter it's been!

Winter Surprise!

The first snow this year came quietly, filling the yard and street as we slept.
We went to sleep with the weatherman's words reassuring us: dusting. It was going to be “just a dusting of snow.”
Ha! It was more like 7.5 inches of heavy wet snow, making the roads slick and every tree branch and flower stalk a work of glistening art.
With such beauty as that round about, who could complain?
Today the snow is dripping slowly from those same silver branches, but there's more snow in the forecast. This time they're calling for an inch or two.
If the ratio from “a dusting : 7.5 inches holds true, it's going to be a heavy snowfall!
