Back to winter

Another 6 or 7 inches of snow, just when we were getting a break! But I must admit that right now, while the snow is still falling, the world looks remarkably pretty. The temperature is hovering right at freezing, so the snow is heavy and wet and sticky, and it piles up on every slender branch.
