It is a very snowy day today, and it's quite beautiful out there. That is, when you're looking at it from inside. This is a view from my dining room window. I love to look at it, don't even mind taking a walk in it, but the thought of venturing out onto the roads today holds no appeal for me whatsoever! My facebook friends are posting reports of skidding through intersections on their way to work and I just thank my lucky stars that I 'work' from home. I heard reports of the snow coming yesterday and made a run to the store for food and picked up my prescriptions, so I have no need to leave the house today. It is so quiet...the snow seems to muffle all sound from outside. I don't even hear the traffic on the road. Someone from the electric company came out today to remove a tree branch that was leaning against the power line that crosses the back of our yard, and the only reason I know he did the deed is there are tracks in the snow on the driveway. I never heard him come or go. I feel as if I am wrapped in a white blanket that muffles all sound. It is rather cozy. The birds are feeding steadily all day on the feeder, and I know I'll have to make a trip outside to refill it before day's end. I don't like to have it empty at the end of the day because they come back so early in the morning.
