This was on my way to work yesterday. We've had about the same quantity of snow this year as last (record breaking territory) though there is less on the ground because we've had a few bouts of rain which diminished the snowpack. Yesterday's snow was the wet clingy kind.
I always think it looks like cotton candy when it clumps on the trees like that. Even though it's pretty, I'm looking forward to it being GONE. That's not going to be for another six weeks though.
Thanks for all the pattings on the back yesterday. I'll be fine. It's good to taste a bit of disappointment and sorrow at times, you know, to keep those muscles in shape. It was a sweet sort of melancholy yesterday, born of the same sense of loss I had with Sara, but different and far less severe. There was some happiness too. There was a big cheese tasting going on near one of my classes and I was able to stop by and sample a couple dozen varieties from local producers. My favorite farm was there too so I bought my favorite cheese. A thirty dollar chunk because outside of events like these, you can't get the cheese, you have to go to the farm to buy it. I may have consumed a bit too much when I got home if my body's (non) reaction to the morning coffee is any indicator.
