When we were starting to get our first serious snow of 2012 last week, I was out driving in it, practicing my snow driving skills. The snowfall wasn't quite as thick as I have seen it at various times in the past, but it was definitely coming down and decorating the landscape.
Coming home on a side road, I noticed the interesting pattern the falling snow had created on the branches of some large fir trees, and had to pull over to snap a few photos.
The thought that popped into my head was that the limbs of these trees now resembled hundreds of white-gloved hands.
Beautiful… but also slightly eerie. -- PL
