snow

(no subject)

The snow yesterday evening was really light, but when I was in the kitchen around 10 this morning, I saw big snow falling. When I walked outside to do errands later, it felt like Christmas -- blanket of snow, pine trees... (Our upstairs neighbor put their Christmas tree out on the curb on Epiphany -- after the day's trash collection, apparently.) It wasn't that cold today and didn't snow much, so when I came back home the ground was mostly clear again. But around 6pm I went out to buy milk and snow was falling (really pretty in the light of the streetlights) and had fallen enough to blanket the ground again.
