Snow, No Vodka
Taken around midnight last night. It has snowed a lot since then.
I am in awe of nature. I am. I am in awe of our busy atmosphere swirling and moving around us and above us - and in us every time we breathe. I am thunderstruck with amazement at the way the oceans get mixed up with the sky and then somehow, miraculously fall back to earth as small six sided crystals.
The snow continues to fall. It is truly incredible.
My plans for today include trudging through the white stuff to take pictures, shoveling, of course. I'll also spend a lot of time today metabolizing all the wine I drank while we played Tripoli with the neighbors last night. Somehow, I was on a winning streak, something that never happens to me. Winning is fun, who knew?
OK. A little bit too much fun, perhaps. Today I'm paying the price, but I'm not remorseful. I see why people who live in Russia drink so much and I also now understand, for the first time in my life, why people like to play games. I get it.
