let it snow let it snow!

The skies are heavy and gray today. A. and I spent all weekend raking the leaves that have piled into every nook and cranny of our yard. We raked them into piles and bagged them, and then drove them to the community garden fifty feet down the road and dumped our bags into an enormous pile that will be used as compost. Today I woke up and wished for snow. Our yard is ready, our plants are ready, our trees are ready. I'm ready for the quiet and white and for hot chocolate and for skiing. You see, when you live in the mountains, you like cold weather and you want it to snow.
