The world took on a new cloak whilst I slept. Warm and comfortable in my bed, I lay unaware of the silent change taking place outside. Yet stepping out to the patio at five this morning showed me that once again the sudden hand of nature had been hard at work.
Not until after day had started did I venture out to the lake. At least three inches/seven centimeters of snow had fallen by then. And we’re told it won’t end until tonight.
Sometimes heavy and sometimes light, one thing is certain: it hasn’t stopped.
Perhaps the accumulation will double by this evening. Perhaps more or less than that. While the end result is uncertain, the path is clear: snow all day. It’s entertaining to watch Dallas respond to this—or try to respond anyway.
And though I rarely show the city side of where I live, one thing caught my attention as I returned home this morning: a nearby parking lot as snow came heavily, a dense shroud atop the world, a kaleidoscope of gray brushed effortlessly from heaven to earth.
I will go out later for more photos—and to enjoy the beautiful marvel unfolding today. I will also venture out tomorrow morning to capture the finale in whatever form it has taken by then.
