We awoke this Sunday to a beautiful snowy morning. Although yesterday's temperature was quite mild for January, it dropped down and snowed through the night. Here is a view from out of my cottage window. In the Rocky Mountain West we love our snow. It is a blessing for both the skiers and the farmers. The snow pack we receive in the mountains during the winter keeps all the reservoirs filled. It never seems to hang around for long here in the valley though and I am afraid that it will all be melted soon. The mountains just above us will stay covered for a longer time and it's a beautiful sight to see.
