The first real snowfall
In this part of the country, winter typically "teases" you a couple times with dustings of snow or evanescent flurries. Then a snowfall like this, with wet snow that sticks to the branches and makes the aspen trunks almost disappear. Since you know it will melt in a couple days, the snow becomes a thing of beauty. I'm sure I'll be less sanguine in a month or so when the depth is measured in feet and the temperatures are below zero.
