So 60 degree weather retreated South. The front came through to drop another 2" rain after Wednesday's post and the bit of snow shown here overnight. It's still flurrying.
Most of this will melt today before a predicted inch wakes us in the morning with its silence. It is amazing how noiseless our corners of the world become with snowfall. Rain is noisy, traffic makes it louder. Snow does muffle and blanket what we have become accustomed to hearing in our everyday world. Even the birds react noisily to rain and puff up their feathers while waiting out the snow.
It is pretty while it lasts. I keep telling myself that. Really, I'm a summer person. An over 75 degree, sunshine person. I liked being a desert rat all those years in the Southwest. Still, we're blessed not to have had the horrendous weather so many others are facing this week -- flooding, blizzards, tornadoes.
It's not so bad here after all.
