Last night, late, I was checking the doors before going off to bed and I discovered that it was snowing. Big, beautiful, fluffy flakes, falling silently outside my back door. I turned on the outside lights and turned off the inside lights and stood and just watched the snow for awhile. So peaceful. So beautiful. This is the first snow we have had all winter.

It snowed through most of the morning and early afternoon today—a day to stay inside and drink coffee with lots of milk and cancel appointments and stand at the window and watch the snow. It is nearly gone now. By tomorrow there will be nothing left and spring can proceed on schedule.


  1. Great shots. I love the one with the tree and the bench. Hey, are you going to hang with Gerrie when she moves to Portland?

  2. Here in western CO, I also woke up to fresh snow on the ground. And it was in the low 70's just earlier this week. A taste of spring, just teasing us. It's the start of spring break too!
