A February 2005 Snowfall
I haven't posted anything on this page for quite a while, mainly because the Vermont winter has kept me holed up. We haven't had many snows this year, and till a few days ago none that were particularly striking. But then, over the past couple days -- February 9-10, 2005 -- we did get about twelve inches that came down in a fairly interesting way. The pictures you see here were all taken out the windows of my house and give a pretty good sense of what it's like to be inside here. I remain conflicted about snow. In one sense it's a big pain. Cars have to be shoveled out. Stairs have to be scraped. The result is usually a sore back. But, then, it does make for scenes that spark the imagination and show us just how diverse nature can be when it decides to kick off the traces.
