Well, we had our first "real" snowfall of the day today! It dusted a bit a few days ago, but not enough to stick on the roads. Tonight, though, it snowed about 4 inches in three hours. It made driving home just a bit dodgy! With the first snowfall, it always takes me a minute or two to get back into the swing of things.
Of course, everyone else seems to take a week or two, if they learn at all! All I can say is that I'm very glad I don't live somewhere that it hardly ever snows, and everyone becomes an idiot the moment the white stuff hits the streets. Even though it's fairly annoying to deal with it on the roads, the way it looks on that first day, or that first night, is totally worth it. It's so beautiful when it's sparkling and fresh and clean!! By tomorrow morning it'll all be brown, rock-filled slush, of course. But today? It's a beautiful reminder...
wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
- Psalm 51:7
