(Sorry, no pictures. My computer crashed hard yesterday, and I'm on Dave's tonight. Can't even turn mine on.)

Wow. It's about 1 am and I was really trying to go along with one of my resolutions (to go to bed earlier and get up earlier in the morning) but as I let the pups out to pee one last time, the rain suddenly turned into these giant, soft snowflakes resembling shredded kleenex. Abbie and Cooper came back in the house covered in flakes, looking like reverse Dalmations. Black dogs with white spots. It's falling very quickly now, the flakes heavy with moisture. In fifteen minutes, the roofs and streets and trees are covered with a soft white coating of snow--making the world suddenly clean again, and quiet. I feel as if the neighborhood and all its inhabitants are props in a giant snow globe that's just been shaken furiously by a winter-loving child. I love it!
