A snow day literally and figuratively falls from the sky, unbidden, and seems like a thing of wonder.

The rain changed over to snow early this morning, as predicted. I had to laugh when I woke up and looked out the window to see it was more than flurries. We must have gotten a good 3-4 inches when all was said and done. Big, fat, wet snowflakes fell for a couple of hours this morning and it was beautiful.
After yesterday’s post about an early spring, it was a delight and a hoot to see winter visiting with us once again. Even the birds didn’t seem to mind it. They were chattering and singing as if it was a spring day.
Around 10:30 AM, the clouds cleared, the sun came out, and the snow started melting quickly. The thaw was beautiful, especially in the woods where the sunlight made everything glow. I even heard the peepers again as it began to warm up a little.
By noon, all the snow was gone.
Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own.

Thank you for dropping by today for a short walk in the snow and thaw. I think sunset is going to be interesting this evening. I’ll meet you at the Point. Sunset is now at 5:30 PM. I’ll probably get there early to see the birds, if there are any birds hanging out there. Maybe we’ll get lucky and spot a few eagles.
Be good, be kind, be loving. Just Be. 🙂
