Snow has finally arrived! She came silently in the night and softened the edges of the world. I’m not a Northerner yet, still fascinated with how snow can blanket us in a velvety silence.

I trekked out earlier with Chibi in the lead, taking mindful steps through the soft mounds. Chibi, meanwhile, rampaged onward, hopping, leaping, verifiably twirling in the snow, gathering it into her fur for the most comical snow beard.

Now that I’ve done my mandatory walk, I’m going to stay firmly cozied up next to my space heater because school has been delayed !!! Winter colds are ghastly but snow days are delicious.
