First Snow

Snow at Home
December 30, 2016
It happened yesterday. We received the first snow of the season here in Elkridge. 

It was, I hate to admit, pretty falling from the sky as gentle flakes blown about by the wind. It was even prettier because it did not accumulate and therefore did not cause additional work.

It was cold outside. It has been cold now for a couple of days. Too cold to do much outside, except watch for a few moments the snowflakes falling from the sky.

It is fitting that the next to last day of the year should being the first snowflakes of the winter season to my home. I hope the last day of the year is more mild, although the temperature is starting very cold at 27 degrees.

Well, as it is the last day of 2016 here is my wish that all of your dreams come true during 2017. Take a moment of pause today and recount the blessings of 2016--even though there has been hurt and loss, there are things to be thankful for during the year that is closing out.

Happy New Year! May your 2017 be blessed.
