>SNOW!!

Yes, we’ve had a bit of snow. Both last night and this afternoon. Both times it changed to rain, though, so no accumulation. But how lovely, this afternoon, to look out at big snowflakes slowly drifting down. I love the first snows. They remind me of our first year here in Massachusetts, when a storm began with large, soft flakes, slowly slowly slowly drifting down. For three days. It was amazing. My first truly huge snowstorm. We all went mad for it. When the sidewalks were plowed, the snow was piled head-high. It was February, 1969, and I will never forget standing on our screened-in second floor porch with my husband, watching the snow fall. Soft, hushed, beautiful. It is one of my favorite life-time memories. Snow.
