Snow! I went to sleep by the soft sound of rain and woke a few hours later to silence. I opened the drapes and everything was white! It hadn't seemed cold enough for snow this morning. It certainly still isn't cold enough for the snow to stick around for long. I'm listening to the melt trickle through the downspout right now, and the streets have already emerged from their white blanket. The gray lower clouds are drifting and thinning, occasionally revealing a patch of blue sky edged by the bright white higher clouds that are catching the afternoon sunlight. There are even a few birds singing.
But now I have to go out and get my head yanked by the chiropractor. Maybe there'll be time this evening to get all nostalgic about the big blizzard of '07. Right now I'm late, as usual.
