January Snow

Blaze in January snow

An excerpt from Diane Ackerman’s Cultivating Delight:

“…Snow looks glittery and solid, and yet its molecules are in motion, it’s constantly flowing. I like snow’s odd quality of pouring over and around things without breaking up, so that it creates pockets of air, overhanging eaves, accidental igloos, where garden animals huddle to keep warm. I like how solidly snow packs, and how tiny flakes of it can bring a large city to a halt, when snow is nothing but water and air, mostly air…”
