Clear Skies


Just a dusting of snow left on the tree limbs

The morning brought bright sunshine and, although it was still below freezing, the sound of drip, drip, drip from the eaves. Streets that last night were snow-covered (only about 1/2 inch, but covered nonetheless) are clear except in shady patches.
Looking out my kitchen window this morning while waiting for my coffee to brew, I beheld a yard full of diamonds.  There was enough sleet in last night's wintery mix to create light-catching shards of ice that glittered and glimmered on the surface of the snow. I tried to capture the sparkles in a photograph, but gave up after a few chilly tries, so you'll just have to use your imagination.
All's right with the world here.  I hope you can say the same.
Tomorrow is also a day.

Sounds nice. We're having a big melt here too. Unfortunately some of it is getting INTO the house via the window frames. Ugh!

We have pretty much melted also. Sigh. I was able to get in my walk in the snow--loved it-- and a bit of shoveling. Most exercise I have had in a while and it felt good.
Maybe more snow in the coming week??

All of our snow is now gone, but we haven't seen any of your pretty blue skies. It has turned cold, so we may get more of the white stuff in the days ahead.

It's been very stormy here, still is in fact, and grey. I'd love to see a blue sky like that. And some diamonds too ;-)

Those blue skies were grand. I just wish they'd hung around for a few more days.
