Valiant Little Things

The stones last week threw our way created traveling ripples. With time and distance, the waves are more gentle.

February’s first hours brought our biggest snowstorm yet. Weather forecasters called the system that brought our moisture “The Pineapple Express.” It originates beyond Hawaii, out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. It moves quickly, fetching outlandish amounts of water along the way. Clouds open their bay doors over the mountain west. Boom. Our usual powdery snow is sticky and thick. It’s a confident, clinging, deep, quieting snow.

Even the most tender, delicate bits of branches are asked to support the weight. The miracle is that they do, with supreme skill.
