Snowy, Snowy Night

Tonight, while driving home, it suddenly started snowing: big, damp flakes falling like confetti under the streetlights. It was our first significant snowfall during waking hours, and Ellie was amazed, ecstatic, and longing to eat every flake. I fired off a few pictures and here they are, fresh from the camera. They are kind of sloppy and hasty and poorly composed but I love them because this, this is just exactly how it felt.

It feels like magic. These are great. Send some our way, would you?

I love this pictobrowser thing. As soon as I kick the punks out of the park and I get some good pictures, I am putting this thing to use.

It was magical. Everything is magical with a person who is just discovering the world. Well...it's either magical or kind of excruciating. Little bit of both.

Pictobrowser is indeed awesome, free, and super simple to use. Tanya, if you have a flickr account, you can make your own by just clicking the link in the corner of my slideshows.

Gorgeous! I remember snow from my childhood and it was magical, just as it was for you all in the pics. I haven't lived in a snowy place since then though, so I miss it even more.

Melanie...dear.

Why do I look blind in these photos?

Now, I'm not talking about the heightened sensory walk that the blind have; listening and feeling their way through the world, gracefully.

I'm talking 'bout stricken-blind, staggering around like I was just hit by lightning. Was I drinking? Was there a crouton in my EYE? Your camera captured a side of me I hope I never see again.

That last picture has a "where'd she go...where'd she GO?" quality to it.

My reputation as a teetotaler is over.
