SNOW ON CRAB


How does snow do this—pile five inches deep on a quarter inch branch?

Snowflakes settle so gently down—can you imagine sprinkling anything so softly?

Then they hook their fine, crystalline arms, defying gravity and a nudge of breeze. 

It all reminds me why we northerners put up with winter.

I love this photo Jeffrey... your snow seems extra light and fluffy indeed to have piled it on so thick....

Insulation and warmth for a sometimes cold world, rather than Insults and a fiery temper to shake off any potential stiffness.

Thanks, Bernie. Yes, the snow was extraordinary. I think it was something about the way the flakes interlocked w/ each other that made the feathery piles last a couple of days, even with a little breeze.
