Winter wonderland

We got our first official snow here in Boulder. It had dusted the rooftops in my neighborhood a few weeks ago, but not at the official weather station, so that didn’t count. The past two evenings have been remarkable because the moon has been nearly full and casting bright light in the late evening, almost like in the movies where they film it during the day but then darken the film to make it look like night.

Isn’t it wonderful that snow is white? How much worse would winter be if snow were gray or brown yuck falling from the sky?
