...Ditto what SW said.
There's nothing I love more than a soft, fluffy snowfall that causes gorgeous quiet, and coats everything with magical, glistening, light snow.
But....this was anything but, because the wind made it frightening.
The nonstop noise of the howling outside gave me shivers. Every minute I feared losing power, and in freezing temps, this old house loses warmth very quickly. Luckily, the lines around here were okay, although not far away a tree fell on the wires and power was out for several hours. Brrrr.
I think everyone should enjoy a foot or so of snow at least once, so they can make at least one snow angel!
Thanks for reminding me of the best thing about deep snow, Laura.
