Snowed In

Just like everyone else in the Baltimore/DC metro area, we're snowed in bigtime. And just like everyone else life slowed down a bit. Friday night we opened the blinds in our front sunroom, lit some candles, and just watched the snow fall onto Paradise.

Life was different with so much snow. It wiped clean all other priorities and demands. And when the sunrose there was only one focus, freedom. The quantity of snow was overwhelming, but it helped bring my neighborhood together. It was nice to just work, outside, with people, no cars, no TV, walking on Frederick road, and snow above my knees. I was sad a little when it stopped snowing early afternoon Saturday, I knew the simplicity was fleeting. I like breaks.
