It's Silver Out There

You should see it. I live in a wooded area, and the night is clear. We had mixed rain and snow today, the snow stayed, but looks pock-marked by the rain. The moon, if it isn't full, is close to.

I looked out the back door tonight, and saw the light and dark of the trees and the yard in the moonlight. My grass is all silver, from both snow and moon, and the trees are black against it. Damned shame I don't have a decent camera.

I stepped out in it for a bit, to get some wood for the fireplace. The stars look like glass, the sky a dark blue. The air is cold and clear, refreshing. The front yard has bigger trees, more evergreens, so it's largely in shadow, but the contrast, the silve and the black, is beautiful. Big trunks with the needles on, the ground under the tree clear, but around the perimeter of the tree, the silver snow. The ground rises and falls a bit, add to the contrast.

Probably the best thing I could ever have done for myself is move here.

If your still on here give me a shout...we must be close to each other because I'm seeing the same thing.
