SNOW STORM!!! I'm feeling my minority status when it comes to loving snow! Sure, I don't like driving in it, or the way a winter storm rearranges your dance card. But I will always go back to that feeling when I was a kid...snow days, sledding, skating, river walking, snow mobiling....The snow draped on the evergreens is an unmatched beauty.

But then it will finally overtake the sun's ability to melt it and the peaceful blanket of white will envelope her for her winter hibernation. May the aviators and locals keep an eye on her til she awakens again in spring! 💖( Thank you, Carrie Ellie, for taking the hike I would if I were there to get this spectacular photo!) ...
