Snowed today.

Funny, snow tends to cover everything in a soft thick blanket; ice retains all the details, but gives them a shimmer and sparkle. One looks like everything is buried in whipped cream, the other makes everything look sugar glazed.

To look at I prefer ice, especially at sunrise, when the dawn shoots orange light through the thousand thousand diamonds of an ice-crusted tree. Tho it's admittedly more fun to fling snowballs about than crumple ice-brittled leaves...
