Very white

Snow is still falling
thirty-six hours later,
the town is silent.

Schools are closed, many stores too;
the busses have stopped running.

Empty pavements, a
passing stranger nods as though
greeting a comrade:

"You too braved the cold? Ah, the
tales we'll tell in our warm homes."

As long as I do not have to drive in it, I still love snow as much as when it meant a day off from school to make snow into people and caves and slides.

Really lovely. More poetry, more photos! The snow has all gone here, but was pretty while it lasted.

I'm so jealous! I wish we'd get enough snow to shut down the city for a bit. We'd need about three feet of it in a four hour period, but I want that! Enjoy the beauty and warm home.
