We got a few inches of snow here yesterday. The farm is situated at just the right elevation so that it can be snowing here, raining at the bottom of the driveway, and clear a mile down the road. It makes for some beautiful mornings, and yesterday there were flakes coming down for most of the day.
The pair of Canada geese that have made a nest at the edge of the pond alternate sentinel duty, and the male had clearly been floating in the pond for a little while to accumulate some snow on his back. The whole scene was so peaceful and solemn, and the gently falling snow made the quiet all the more intense.
