Fresh blanket of snow

morning-blanket-of-snow_staats15156We woke up this morning to a fresh blanket of snow — on the ground and on the trees.  It was a wet snow, and with little wind it was clinging to the trees and piling up on the branches.  Everything was fresh and white.  As the morning wore on and the temperature stayed near 30 degrees, people were out enjoying the winter landscape.  I saw a family building a snow fort, numerous snowmen in various shapes and stages of development, people walking and running, dogs playing in the snow, and even some sleds were brought out for the first time this winter.

    With the current angst embroiling the nation right now, it’s a welcome sight to behold the loveliness framed by your photo. The pristine wonderment of winter is like a shroud of peace covering up our wounds and bringing a sense of relief. Thank you for this amazing shot.

      Nature offers its own healing of all sorts, and this winter wonderland today was one of them. I remember the morning of 9/11 and the only thing I could find that seemed right to do was to head out the door for a run — to be surrounded by the world outside and remember the healing power that nature offers up to us. Thanks, Rex!
