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.
