Who knew we were supposed to get a measurable snowfall on Saturday? Not I. Not the weathermen either. They didn't see this one coming at all.
It started out with big honkin' flakes. I'm talking huge. The kind that usually only last for about 15 minutes before changing to smaller, finer snow. Well, Saturday's snow had something else in mind. The huge flakes continued coming down for about 4 hours and never really changed. It was also wet, which if you live anywhere you get snow, means it sticks. It sticks to everything. Every branch of every tree and then some, making for the most glorious of winter wonderlands.
I headed over to the the sunset meadows field with camera in tow, in the midst of the snow. It was quiet. The world was silently muffled by snow.
By the time it was all said and done we had 7 inches or so (give or take an inch). I think the forecast had called for a trace dusting, if even that. I, for one, was glad they were wrong. This snow was exactly what I love about winter. There was no denying the beauty.
The next day everything was covered in a fresh coat of white. Absolutely breathtaking.
I hope that your weekend was just as beautiful.
On this MLK Day, let's remember the biggest and most important lesson that Dr. King taught was to love our fellow man.
"I have decided to stick to love… Hate is too great a burden to bear."
~ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Enjoy the day all that is around you.
Ciao for now,
