It is December 5, 2009 waking up to a blanket, literally of snow. How I do love this season of the year. It makes everything you see look so clean and pretty. Hard to believe that these little snowflakes coming down from the sky can paint such a picture. It didn't last long, only about morning as the sun shining down melted it slowly at first and then before you know it the green and brown of the winter grass started to poke through. Gone now, still cold outside with just a sprinkling of snow on the ground to remind us that winter is on its way.
