97 hours of snowfall. We received over 4 feet of snow. And today, a beautiful blue sky and sunshine. Get out the sunglasses!!!
Now I can think about something else besides how much it is snowing!!
But of course all my thoughts are of snow! And how beautiful it all looks. Our dwarf alberta spruces in front of the house look like little gnomes guarding our home. In the backyard the honeysuckle vine, all twisted and curved, is painted with snow. The various evergreen trees hold snow puffs on all their branches. The garden beds are buried and holding in their warmth, giving rest to all the underground life. The birdhouses and feeders all have high domed hats on, icicles forming like stalactites hang down, reflecting the short bit of sunshine we had this morning. The sparrows huddle together in the rafters of our covered porch, twittering about the weather. The snow has fallen whisper soft, like a brush against the cheek, asking Mother Nature to help it decorate our little town for the holidays.
And now the sun is gone, the sky is gray and eager to continue with its onslaught. The snow is falling heavier than ever. I think it is time to add another log onto the steadily burning wood stove fire.
Snowmen fall from heaven... unassembled. ~Author Unknown
