The Other Day
we had some of this. It was beautiful. It was magical. We don't get too much here as we are only about 40 miles inland from the coast. As a girl from the tropics, I am always enchanted and mesmerized. It is a lovely miracle. I marvel at how Nature smooths out the angles, how She softens our surroundings, and how She brings a palpable silence.
I have to be cautious about what I wish for. Our snow is usually wet and can take the steel in the greenhouses and bend them like toothpicks when we get too much.
I hope for just another wee miracle of snow soon, just enough to delight and enchant me without the damage.
