We had almost eight inches of snow fall on the 13th and 14th of March here in Chicagoland. Certainly not as bad as our friends in Sharon Springs, NY who have thirty six inches today and the snow is still falling there.
I love snow, always have. I went out to shovel and my sweet neighbor Peggy came by with her snowblower and did the driveway and walk while I did the cleanup. The cold crisp air, the snow crystals flying from the snowblower...it is awesome.
I know many dislike the cold, I might be part polar bear.
Nothing is as beautiful as freshly fallen snow.
A bright blue sky, it's the only time we get that high altitude blue
I saw in Aspen, Colorado in my youth.
In a few weeks the leaves will pop...
Tiny green sprouts will shoot up from the ground...
until then, I will enjoy the beauty, bundle up and walk in this
winter wonderland because it is fleeting.
Soon the sound will be of lawn mowers...
Kids laughing in the yard...
but today, I love a March snow.
Enjoy this beautiful day.
