whenever it falls, it is marvelous

while driving into boston from vermont an unexpected snow storm took over roads,  my journey took three times longer at one point i should have stopped i know. Oh it was so beautiful, thick wet white snow fell upon branches and stretched out fences. i could not help but to snap a few pictures while i drove, i know a terrible habit that i justified with "well if anything  was to happen my camera would be left with pretty photographs. for most of the ones above i managed to roll down the window but please forgive the wet specks on each one.  i love  the snow when it falls like this, i did wish i was walking instead, for dear friends i could have showered you with what i saw that afternoon, pure winter wonderland. even though my hands were tightly gripping the steering wheel and i questioned my rational while driving passed many cars that found themselves in a ditch, i knew that what i was seeing was winter at it's best- pure.

* today is my sister nancy's birthday i don' remember how old she is except to say she is much, much younger, uurrr!:)  Happy birthday dear, crazy dedicated sister. may your dreams of cuba and foreign land, tiny waist line  be only the beginning of what is wonderful to come your way.

Wow! These are so amazing. Living here in Australia I've never been able to experience a true winter like this, and we tend to travel to the Northern Hemispher in your summer. It is on my wishlist to experience snow like this rather than just on ski slopes. These are magical. I love your birthday message to your sister!

What stunning beauty... I can almost hear how quiet it is.
Just finally read your profile on "read with me". Made me smile.
Thank you for the weekly bits of serenity.
