On the North Side
They say if you are lost in the woods you should look for moss on the north side of the trees. Well, today you can look for snow on the north side of everything. It lingers there on the north side of the stone wall, the north side of the hill, and the house, and the shed, and anything that gets between the sun and the earth. It's there like cold white shadows instead of ordinary dark ones.
It's supposed to warm up, and rain tonight in which case maybe the snow will all leave. But it feels pretty cold out there. There's always the chance that more snow will arrive to join the white shadows. I love a white Christmas, but a white Easter, not so much!
