The first snow fell over night and everything is quiet outside.
The howling wind that brought the storm has calmed and the birds are huddled around the feeder.
The dog stepped out for his morning constitutional and made it as far as the back porch before noticing the world had changed. He put his nose down and snuffled under the blanket of snow before leaping off to run around in circles like a puppy.
Soon we will find mitts and hats and snowpants. Put on boots and join him for snow angels
