Cool, Flaky Rain

Too late for Christmas, but here it is. Our wind and rain has turned into flaky rain blowing sideways.

The video clip I’ve attached doesn’t really show anything, but just the fact that I’ve posted it must show how incredulous I am about the white stuff coming down after weeks and weeks of wind and rain.


The wet stuff has changed

The drops rearranged,

Snowflakes come down,

They’re blowing around,

Gray sky and breeze,

I’m down on my knees,

I pray it won’t last

And it melts away fast.

    Don’t you just love that sound of snow, the way it absorbs noises and causes silence? That looked a little heavy and drifty though. Your weather usually comes our way, but then turns into something a little different. We’re due for snow this weekend. I’m actually looking forward to it, since it’s not a work day and they’re saying it’ll only be a couple of inches. Hopefully that’s all. Today it’s super windy but sunny.

    I’m like you, Anneli. Awww, isn’t it pretty. Now, please STOP! We had snow flurries all day yesterday that produced nothing but wind, the best kind of wintery day. Today, it’s in the 20s, so windy that the chimes are down, and sunny, Brrrrrr.
