I'd say we got about two inches of snow. The truck came by to scrape the street about two o'clock and woke me up. The snow had stopped and was already beginning to drop from the branches, but the oaks still looked like white webs, and the few fir trees in the neighborhood retained some considerable clumps. I saw a patch of blue sky in the southwest, and watched it gradually approach. The sun emerged and the landscape became dazzling for about ninety minutes. I sneezed. Now there are very dark clouds gathering, and it looks as though there will be more snow tonight. I prefer the snow at night, anyway, especially when it's heavy enough to keep most of the cars off the roads. It never gets more quiet here than when the whole town is buried under snow at night.
