No More Snow
And I've watched the dripping of the ice, the snow receding. I feel a little bit sad over it, I really do, but not enough so to want to have it more often, lol. I was minding my own business earlier when the ice and snow began sliding off the house, hitting the heat pump. Gracious but that made me jump, and not just once but several times.
Chance called earlier with concern when former co-worker reported it was snowing ten miles west of home. But just ten miles can make such a difference, as he found out last night coming home. The county where he works is twenty-five miles or so south of home. That county was clear of snow by yesterday afternoon. Here we were getting misting rain that froze over the surface of our sleet snow mix. It even crept under the carport and coated the cars in a sheet of thick ice that had to be thawed before he could leave this morning.
Earlier this month when I found a picture on a blog that I just loved of a foggy snowy morning I felt I had to save the picture to use as a January wallpaper on my computer. I've gazed at it morning after morning as the computer booted. This morning a similar scene was mine outside my own doors. Ice encased trees, snow on ground, a white misty fog overall...It was just gorgeous.
It was lovely having snow but I'm glad it's gone...
