-6°C (21.2°F) Greeted by the blue-white light of fresh snow – more than we expected, but not too much. Two inches and all is forgotten. No more mud. No more grime. Time for buds to reconsider. Time to reflect once more on the beauty of winter – to fix it in our minds before it’s lost in the chaos of spring. A clean, smooth, even coat. Powder, not clay. And a promise of sunlight after days of gray.
