OK, we've had a couple of dustings before this, but this is the first snow that stayed. About four inches, much less than predictions. I think just north and east of us got hit harder.
I still like the hush and the soothing effect of the colors toned down by the snow. There are green, brown, white, blue, but somehow the effect is monotone.
Suddenly, the little pine tree that was hardly noticeable out in the field pops out,
while the tree line and horizon are muted
Yellow leaves still hug the path, but the path is now so obvious, until more snows flatten the grass. And wild animals aren't stupid. They will use a pathway that is easily traveled if it's going where they want to get to.
The clouded sky let through just a bit of light, for a wonderful Tyndall effect.
