We had our first snow of the season over the weekend, blanketing the yard in white.
This morning when I took my dog out, the world was still. She flushed a few sparrows from a bush, but all other living creatures were in hiding. The rabbits Vanish whenever they see her, but they left their tracks before us in the snow.
In and around them were our prints as we circled the yard in the softening snow.
Temperatures rose above freezing through the day and by evening the snow had almost vanished.
