in the dead of winter

here there has been very little snow. a brown christmas. an even browner start of january.  the fear of farmers…their perennial crops of winter wheat and feed.  snow is a necessity…a blanket to protect the barely under ground tenders.  a drive out to the country side last weekend made me realize that even the surrounding areas of flat prairie were monochrome swathes of brown, grey and a mix of in between.  it was only in the scattered islands of poplar and birch trees huddled together that snow could be held captive.  away from the sun.  dry as a bone.

but today…it’s snowing.  and this makes me very happy.  i can’t wait to wake up tomorrow morning and see how brilliant everything will look….a nice change.
