On the Feast of Stephen...

A happy Feast of St Stephen/Boxing Day to you and yours. Hope yesterday was all you had wished for...
"Announced by all the trumpets of the sky,
Arrives the snow, and, driving o'er the fields,
Seems nowhere to alight: the whited air
Hides hills and woods, the river and the heaven,
And veils the farm-house at the garden's end.
The sled and traveller stopped, the courier's feet
Delayed, all friends shut out, the housemates sit
Around the radiant fireplace, enclosed
In a tumultuous privacy of Storm."
Emerson,The Snow Storm

Absoluely perfect, for we on Vancouver Island are now getting another blanket of 3-5" on top of the 8-10" on the ground...

Very wet and fluffy snow that is perfect for snowmen and terrible to drive in.
