it came out of the wordwork

It was snowing when we went to bed
Hardly seems news this year: snow.

We went for supplies yesterday amid flurries and snow showers, to no accumulation. Then, last night as we were getting ready for bed, I glanced out at the sky... which was full of very fluffy snow. The deck was covered, the cars in the drive were coated, as was the road. Not deep snow, mind, but enough to cover.

This morning we had a bit of a wind around 5 AM, enough to excite the various chimes and bells, and enough to sweep most of the 1/2 inch or so of snow off the deck and pile it artistically about. At very first light the sky-was full of busy clouds; at the moment, the blue is unstained, the cars and nooks and crannies have snow in the spots the wind couldn't find.

With luck I'll get out to chess tonight and you may get a report on that, elsewise I'm catching up with all kinds of stuff. Bu Friday we'll at least have a scheduled "first light" for the new catalog page.

Oh yeah: Saturday marked my first red wing sighting of the year. Spring is sprunged. Saltation is almost up. Breakfast is due.
