Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

And the snow continued to fall. For over 41 hours, the skies were out of sight as the pretty flakes came down. About 6 this morning, the storm was over and we can, once again, see further than a short block. From Thursday noon until after I went to bed last night, I could see only the two buildings on the cross street and nothing further -- not even the trees 20 feet beyond them. This morning, I can see the mountain tops on Douglas Island and way down Gastineau Channel and the clouds in the sky. And the plow came by at 6:30, so I can get out of here when I want to.

Because we didn't know how it would be last night, and were being advised to stay off the roads if possible, we canceled our Saturday morning breakfast, and are doing Sunday lunch instead. Other than that, the world is quiet and very white right now. The parking lot across the street is filled with large, white lumps. And the world looks like a Christmas card.

I miss snow sometimes...probably because in my whole life, I don't think I've ever had to shovel it.
