Mourning Winter

With over two inches of snow already on the ground and more quickly falling, it’s odd to think that today is Valentine’s Day.  It feels more like a white Christmas.  I wish it was.  The chilled air is filled with a flutter of white.  I didn’t see the sun today and now night is falling.

Tomorrow is President’s Day so school is already out.  I wish adults could have a snow day.  What I wouldn’t give to be ten again and bundled up in clothes, out riding a trash can lid down the powdery hill.

I never was good making men out of snow.

Before the sun sat, I snapped these photos out the back door of some winter birds that had stopped by for a bite to eat.  Jim Grimsley would be proud.
