This morning Brattleboro is being treated to a very nice snow storm. It's a heavy, constant snow, covering up all the dirt and grime of the previous storm. For a moment, it looks like a calendar, or snow globe.
We've had four or five inches so far, and more is falling. Is the snow falling to the ground, or the ground rushing up to meet it?
When I first looked out this morning, I saw flakes that were hovering in mid-air over the street, just bouncing along at a height of about 8 feet with no intention of dropping. Others were choosing to drop, but a certain class of flakes would have nothing of it.
I've seen no sign of the neighborhood animals - the squirrels, stray cats, and such that are usually out by now. I assume they've all tucked themselves in somewhere for the duration.
Construction-wise, our neighbor's fort will probably see some expansion after this storm. It survived the slightly warmer weather of the previous weeks, got a good coating of ice yesterday, and the builders now have a fresh delivery of building material.
I expect to see some new snow monsters after this.
