Cool thing happened yesterday... all the neighbors were out shoveling their drives, when without coordination we just joined forces and helped some of our more elderly neighbors by clearing their drives, and then we did the sidewalk around the block. It's always nice to see neighbors - acting neighborly; humans - acting human. I still believe it can be a kind world.
Between snow storms this morning, I carefully walked about and enjoyed some brisk beauty. Harsh sunlight on bright white snow - now there is a challenge! We don't get to see snow all that often - but sounds like we'll be seeing plenty in the next few days.
Had I had confidence in our roads being clear to drive (and didn't need to clear my driveway), I think it would have been super fun to dive in the snow. I might still get my chance...
