a magical event

It snowed last night, a steady feathering of white, illuminated by the golden glow of the street lamps. This morning we awoke to just a dusting. We'll get a big one this winter, I think, and we'll all be swathed in the quiet and still for awhile. 

all above:



The first fall of snow is not only an event, 
it is a magical event.  You go to bed 
in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment
 then where is it to be found?  ~J.B. Priestley
