A Winter Landscape

“If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?”

Percy Bysshe Shelley

1792-1822

The snow is falling fast, gently, silently… and beautifully.

Fifteen inches of snow is predicted by the end of the day today!  Yesterday forecasters predicted only three to five inches but things have changed—a lot!  It’s been snowing all day, a wet, heavy snow, and Rick and I have spent most of our day going from indoors to outdoors, just to keep up with the shoveling.

Even though this winter storm means slower traffic, heavy shoveling, and indoor running, it’s beautiful.  A winter landscape.

Even the roof needs shoveling, due to the heavy, wet snow.
