It was a tricky forecast for yesterday morning, with some combination of snow and rain predicted, and no one sure how much or when it would happen.
So the kids got the day off of school but the roads were clear, and the trees were covered in wet, heavy snow.
Naturally we went to Claude Moore Park for a walk in the woods, so I could take pictures.
Something about the next picture of Henry under the cedars reminded me of a Miyazaki film, but I can’t say which or why.
To me, the bent tops of the cedars resembled the nave of a cathedral.
I’m thankful that I have kids who get really excited about taking a walk in the snow and mud. Henry is sitting on my lap while I edit this post and saying, “I want to do that again!” He especially wants to stand on the partially-rotten “log bridge” from where I took this next shot:
By late afternoon, the temperature had warmed and the snow was gone. I’m glad we went out in the morning and experienced this winter beauty while we could.
