The Perfect Storm
I'll likely regret saying this in about 24-36 hours when I have to begin digging out--but this is the perfect snowstorm. The fluffy flakes have been falling for hours now and we are a little over halfway through. I've sat by the window completely mesmerized by the dance of snow falling. At times it has been so heavy that I now truly understand the meaning of a "white out"-- sometimes it has been difficult to clearly see the building next to mine. The forceful wind is pushing large drifts of accumulation against anything stationary in its path. Temperatures are not expected to rise above freezing so the mounds of snow won't melt for awhile. That's okay with me, I'll stay inside toasty warm, sip my cup of tea and enjoy watching the remainder of nature's winter display, It is what it is.
