A Long Awaited Snow

We waited long for this season's first substantial snow fall. There is somehow something fulfilling about this first snow, something that seems to say that winter is finally back and that the seasons will continue to change and usher in their characteristic glories. We stepped outdoors this morning to a brilliantly lit world. The white snow, unmarred by boots and plows, reflected so much sun that Hannah ran inside for her sunglasses.
