Yes, we got our first snowfall last night, only about 1/2″ but it’s lovely and it’s still hanging around as of this afternoon, because the temperature has just risen about freezing and it’s very gusty out. Tomorrow it’ll be in the 50s and the snow will be a sweet memory as well as an omen.
It was beginning winter,
An in-between time,
The landscape still partly brown:
The bones of weeds kept swinging in the wind,
Above the blue snow. — Theodore Roethke, from “The Lost Son”
