It’s been a few years since we’ve had a good snow–the kind of snow that makes the ordinary seem extraordinary.
Ten inches of vibrant snow can highlight intricate details.
It can cover the bumps and the ruts,
and the man-made contributions to an otherwise perfect landscape.
I like to be the first one out in a snow like this,
to see impermanent traces of nature on the pristine environment.
We finally had snow enough for a picture-perfect day!
