Finally, and likely not lastingly, it's snowing. Considering it's been trying for a couple of weeks but nothing stuck...well, it's nice to see. Normal. Really, we're in January in Vermont and still with the bare ground? That's not right.

You never know how it'll end. The snow began early this morning and there's only a sugar frosting out there now. The flakes are tiny, which some consider the kind that keeps coming down. The Weather Channel said it'd just be flurries. I've shovelled flurries before.

The sun is setting. With the energy-efficient security lights I won't be able to see much of what's falling soon. But I hope we wake up to a wintery fairyland.

If you don't have to go out in it, watching the snow come down is one of the most beautiful scenes to experience. We have only had some flurries since the surprise snow of October and I can say that I am loving this warmer weather that has come our way.

I have not had the time to spend on blogger lately because I have had a house load of company . My daughter and her family from Ca just left today. Once I get myself and home organized, I will be back. Thanks for your concern, that was so sweet of you. I am doing fine, just a little exhausted from all the merriment and loads of dishes.
