I was going to start this post with a rant about how I’ve had enough of winter and never want to see another one for the rest of my life. It’s cold, it’s windy, and I hate driving on slick roads. But while shoveling snow gets awfully tiresome, I must admit winter has a certain beauty; plus, those seemingly endless storms brought us much-needed snowpack.
Last week after putting down about two feet of the white stuff, Mother Nature brought us a night of howling winds which left some sizable drifts across my freshly-plowed driveway. I went out early the next morning to clear off the sidewalk–AGAIN. Amid my grumbling and grousing, however, I couldn’t help noticing how beautifully the wind had arranged the snowy field. After clearing off the concrete I put the shovel away and grabbed my camera.
These pictures reminded me of the sand formations at Bruneau Dunes:
The snow sparkled like diamonds, but in this picture looks like black sand:
Yes, the snow is pretty–but I’ll still be glad to see green grass again!
