Back home and we are being blessed by a light dusting of snow. Hard to believe we were paddling in the warm sunshine less than two weeks ago and now we are looking out on a -5C day. What is there about snow that is so attractive? The white blanket makes the world look quite magical. Ours is less than 1/2 inch deep but it is enough to create an illusion of real snow. As I type, a black kitty with a patch of white on his chest is running across our white lawn and the contrast is almost like the races in My Fair Lady. It is all just magic.
