And again! Thank you to all who follow and support me!!

Regardless of outcome from the “storm of the century” it was a day when all non-essential personnel were told to just stay home. No planes carved white paths through the sky, no vehicles lumbered by on the road below. There is a silence to a snowstorm unlike any other. Birds flitted down to the feeders for sustenance but wasted no breath on song.DSC_8822 DSC_8824 It was a day for making snow angels,


rolling down tiny hills,


measuring depths,


starting all over again,


and playing like no one was watching.


It was a day of changing light and shapes.


It was the day the world took off…

    Glad you had some fun in the snow. I tried to find a shovel big enough to get all of this FL sunshine off the driveway, but it just kept slipping through.

  2. I was going to do a post on why it’s quieter in winter but the reasons were so complicated I gave up.
    Even the local coffee shop closed yesterday even though we only got about 6 inches of snow.

    1. It is a deep silence and very otherworldly…

    We’ve yet to have a knock-down, drag-out winter storm this season. There’s an awful beauty to them, is there not? 🙂

    Our weather warnings brought about an inch of snow on a hill about fifteen miles from here. The buses all cut their routes short and panic ensued. All we had was slush! I like the silence of snow and the fresh crispness beofre anyone walks on it. It isn’t something I’ve seen often though.
