first snow
the kitten
lifts her paw

Let's hope we've seen the last snow for a while. By a rare feat of good timing, we were in london when the last big snowstorm hit New York, but we were here for the others. And we got back in time for the big rain that proved more damaging than all the year's snowstorms combined.

Oh I like this one very much ! We had cats, for years - and I can see her, the kitten, lifting delicately her little paw in this unknown cold, white softness... Thank you Bill, this triggered a lot of tender memories.

from London's fog --
sweet snowings at home!

We have an old springlike
saying in Finnish:
the new snow
is killing the old one
