Snow Day!

We got our first real snow of the winter yesterday–quite late this year!–and it was definitely heavier than the forecast, but it was that powdery loveliness, without much wind whipping up drifts or scalding noses.

Everyone loves the first snow of the year–everything’s so shiny and pretty and sugar-coated. Eventually you get sick of the slush and the cold and getting bundled up just to get the mail. But that first day’s delightful.

In contrast,  today is gloriously sunny, but in the single-digits and windy, so I’m enjoying the snow from inside today.
