Yesterday's brief, lovely,.light snow was, as I wrote, just enough -- enough to coat the meadow and the trees, and not much more than that. Gone by midday today in those areas that receive full sun. Only a hint lingers in the shade at the edge of the forest.
A bit more lingers on my drive, as I expected.
Which is no rough duty. The pantry is well-stocked, and I have no heavy or bulky goods to carry. The day's mail and newspapers, little more than that. I can take my time and when I pause it will be because I wish to, not to give my arms a rest or, as has happened more than once, rearrange things for easier transport.
Not much snow remains in the woods, and I doubt if very much actually made it to the ground.
But what little snow lingers there is gorgeous and is itself, worth lingering over as I make my way past.
Which I did.
