As I walked into our residence meadow to take Honey for her morning consitutional I was reminded how muffling a thick blanket of snow is. Other than the rushing of the creek all I could here was my own crunching footsteps while the rest of the world was under a blanket of sound-deadening insulation. Oh yah… it was also pretty to look at – all the trees, bushes, cabins and fences were topped with the white powdery stuff.
Unexpectedly, we got a 6″ blanket of snow last night – more in higher elevations. It’s now partly cloudy with a reasonably high possibility of additional precipitation during the day but sunny days are expected starting tomorrow through the weekend.
