That is what amazed me. The flakes were so tiny, but they accumulated into three feet of snow!

I can smell the snow and feel the air on my cheeks 😊
Since I haven’t had snow this winter this feeds me with its soft, icy blanket.
That was such a lovely post to see at a time when I needed it the most. Thank you for that!
Nice picture and words. Can’t remember the last time I saw snow like that.
Yet another of nature’s virtues.
The flakes don’t feel as though they are as light as air when shovelling.
I should be a pine tree, then, perhaps I’d learn to bow to winter. 😉
I love the contrast of the light snowflakes and the heavy accumulation of them weighing the branches down.
It was such a beautiful storm.
