Snow is so unusual at this time of year in the American midatlantic that, even though everyone else was getting ready for a big one, I remained skeptical all day yesterday. But they were right! We're in the midst of a serious, heavy-duty snowstorm, or as my friend Donald would say, the snow ponies have come to town.
My guess is that if I lived in Minnesota or upstate New York, I would not be so excited and enthused about snow, but since I live at the northern edge of the American south, I am thrilled anytime we get an accumulation.
Instead of going on and on as I tend to do on a day like today, I'm thinking I'll have another cup of tea, get my book and read and gaze and revel in the beauty of it all.
