We woke Monday in a snow storm. This was certainly not the biggest storm we have experienced; it was just a few inches of powder. But being in a storm is remarkably peaceful. The snow seems to dampen sound where you feel the space around you is a little smaller, a little more personal. The same happens with visibility. Unlike rain, the snow does not soak you—you can just brush it off your clothes. While we are both ready for spring, especially after that last two unusually long winters, it was a nice interlude. Much of the snow melted in the 40°F weather on Tuesday. Click on the image for a large view.
