The storm this past weekend brought a whole lot of one kind of snow, rather than the crazy variety of formulations that fell two winters ago.
This year's storm made it hard to compost the food scraps in the frontyard Wishing (the earth) Well,
made it look like our house is balding,
made our roofs into glacier-capped mountains,
collaborated with the sun to fashion a shadowy snow angel with the head of hosta seeds,
served up a birdbath snowcone,
fashioned a leaf corral snowman who looks like he should have Pinocchio nose,
and availed itself of the comfort of our lawn furniture. A little sculpting and we'd have a pair of very content snowmen.
