Hail to the Plowman!

Vic had to convert our tractor to its snowplow identity to plow our driveway this morning. It’s hard to tell which–the snow or the plow–Cat Halvor disliked less. In any case, the red tabby is out on an errand.

Good morning, snow!

Snow fell last night with more determination than it had yesterday afternoon. The seasonal variations of the basalt hills in our viewshed are always striking, and, to quote an old friend, well worth the price of admission.

Effie heads out into the deepening snow of Effieland. . .

She goes into stalking mode–she alone knows what she stalks with such savvy and grace.

And where was Effie?

Washing her tummy, of course. . .

Effie’s Snow Watch

Mom, it’s snowing! Come see!

I love the soft little snowflakes. . .where do they go? Why do they disappear? Why can’t I keep some?

For a very few minutes, a very light snow was falling and melting on ground contact. Effie and I both were enchanted by the snowflakes’ ephemeral appearance.

Effie’s hangover

Effie¬† flopped adorably over the dryer from her warm mat. I was listening to an mp3 in my phone and put it on hold and switched to camera mode to grab the shot. (My camera’s phone doesn’t have a fast shutter speed, so please don’t judge the focus.)
