Winter White

Winter white. There's nothing better in the middle of January. We had 6 inches of snow last night, and there's still flurries out there. It's wonderful. I'm glad that it snowed. Iowa is not very pretty in the winter. The grass is brown, the trees are bare; it just looks dead. Now, everything looks crisp and clean. I think its great!

Now, Jonathan may think differently. It took him a good 40 minutes to scoop our tiny driveway and deck. That's because he dealt with more than just the regular 6 inches, he had to remove the "mountain" of snow at the end of the driveway given to us by the snowplow. We kind of got burried in the driveway. But he took care of that early this morning.

I think its a great break to the winter blues. It gets dark at 4:45pm and the sun doesn't rise until after 7:15am. I think the snow adds a wonderful new perspective to winter. Its just beautiful!!
