Today was truly a winter wonderland. The snow started very quietly as I drove north to work. By the time I was driving west, the flakes were pooling on the pavement, and swirling, dancing like dervishes. When I got to the office, enough snow was stuck to the ground that I left the first footprints in the walkway to the door. All morning the snow continued, slow but steady, so that when I drove home, the sides of the road were white and there was a layer of snow delicately balanced on all the tree branches, creating a lace effect.
