It began snowing around 9am this morning and by 11:30 there was close to 5" on the ground. We have close to 8" now and it is 1:oo. It's suppose to snow until late afternoon and at this rate who knows how much will be on the ground.
I do love snow and I do love how it has a way of shutting things down for awhile. That is unless you are stuck in a car or in an airport....but I am not. I'm at home now, 4 hours earlier because my afternoon appointments cancelled. The drive home was exhilarating to say the least. I called my friend Dan to share the experience with him because I knew it would make him so thankful that he was in KC where it is sunny today.
I love conifers under any condition, but conifers in the snow have such a surreal feel about them. I would love to take a walk today through the Missouri Botanical Garden's Japanese Garden and snap some pictures of the majestic Japanese Black Pines that have been carefully trained into sculptures.
A day like today really does cause me to stand in awe...just like a cool spring or fall day under clear blue skies would. I love it.
Now snap out of it Kent and go shovel the driveway.
