winter’s coldest night
dispelled by a rose gold dawn –
more snow on the way
Three below zero last night with a wind chill of minus 15 F. This morning the sky in the southeast displayed a band of rosy golden light, sign of more snow. By noon a light snow was falling from the south, covering the ice from the melt and freeze a few days ago, disguising but not eliminating the treacherous layer of black ice on the gravel hills. Still, the woods are lovely with this new dusting of snow.
