The Return of Winter

Just a few days ago, I wrote of a "Hint of Winter's End", but this morning I awoke to a very white world, with wet snow hanging on trees and shrubs, leaving only slight details of dark lines amid the pillowy paleness, a lovely sight. Not much snow had been predicted for this area, but when I went outdoors to shovel at noontime, I was surprised at its depth, a thick covering of 12 inches. It then continued to snow the rest of the day, adding an inch or two more. In true New England fashion, the weather is always surprising.
