Snow everywhere! It is awe inspiring. Those who fancy they are sick of winter and dislike snow are certainly in trouble around here today.
Elv invited us all to run errands with him this morning. At first I declined...choosing the warmth of my wood stove and comfortable, dry indoors rather than the pleasures of an adventure...on second thought, "I'll come". It's been awhile since I had just such a chance at taking pictures of everything snowy. A blizzardly dump of snow does creative things to the our ordinary world view, so to speak.
And no wonder, once they plunged for the woods we understood. They were suddenly in the ditch struggling to get through, swimming in snow over their backs. If you look closely at the next picture you will see one of them there just at the foot of that most obvious tree trunk. They finally broke through into the woods that wasn't quite as deep.
Do you see that blue in there? We began to see this along the tops of all the snow banks by the trail. It has something to do with light through the snow. I took the pictures not at all sure that we'd be able to see it on the pictures themselves. Well, here it is. This picture is untouched. Is this the same thing that you see on the ice along Lake Superior in the spring when the the ice pack comes in looking like it got dunked in blue dye?
