We all had a lovely, restful winter break, and my boys and I are back in the swing of school and basketball and my 'other' job, substitute teaching. Well, until today, that is, - it's a snow day!
Snow is rare in our town, so it makes everyone a little giddy. I love the enthusiasm. :)
My favorite part of snow is all the reflected light bouncing around. We get pretty used to gray skies in the winter, but the brightness of snow and today's sunny skies are a boost I didn't know I needed.
This scene is from a drive to my sister's house in the Columbia River Gorge. This is the town of Stevenson, WA, - those lovely hills across the river are in Oregon.
