We have officially lightened our darkness.
And now, it is snowing lovely big flakes in a hurried, impatient way. Our first snowstorm. I feel the joy that only the unaffected, stay at home people can feel for snow. I can admire the beauty and magical changingness of snow without the inconveniences that other people have to deal with.
We took a quick drive to drop a few things off to Justin and took the long way home to see everything in the snow. (I realize everyone in the USA has already had snow and are probably bored with it, but I love the first snow, so I have to take pictures anyway.)
