Seeing the beauty in Winter

Everything is equal in the snow: all trees, all lawns, all streets, all rooftops, all cars. Everything is white, white, white, as far as you can see. Covered by snow, the well-kept and neglected lawns look the same. The snow hides the shiny newness of a just-bought car as effectively as it does the rust and dents of a ten-year-old one. Everything looks clean and fresh and unmarred by time or use. Snow, like the silent death it counterfeits, is a great leveler.-- Adrienne Ivey

Sunday was one of those amazing snow days - the sun shining on a fresh dusting of snow, and the world was sparkling. Those moments I actually like snow... but only for a moment.

That is a stunning picture Paige! We are not in that beauty of snow stage here! Half my lawn is showing, and the roads are all brown and slushy, I think that is the worst part of winter....the mucky slush!

It was nice to see the beauty in the clean snow and frost of your picture!
