For a change this season I was actually able to get out while the snow was coming down. Most times so far this winter it has fallen overnight when I had to get up, clean the yard and go to work. Or it has fallen while I was working and daylight had faded by the time I got home, cleaned the yard, and thought about getting out. Lots of excuses for not making art. But we had an all day snow event today and it was gentle enough so I could be in it for a few hours. What is nice about that, as you might guess, is the snow stays pristine for a while with little or no debris falling from the trees. Lots of fun.
I feel a little guilty exulting in our weather since much of it is the remnants of what has been making life miserable for so many to our south and west, especially our friends in Texas. I’ve read that conditions are improving but things are still difficult there.
