I told myself that I would not capture an image of the first significant snowfall of this season. Sunday afternoon the snow began. It became more intense. I tried to ignore the white blanket.
In the evening, I turned on the Christmas lights and made the mistake of looking out the window. Camera in hand, I opened the front door and captured this image.
It was so beautiful . . . until the lights went out.
Fortunately, the emergency generator took over, but I turned off the extra lights. About six or seven hours later, commercial power was restored.
In the dark, a neighbor reports taking a tumble but is going to survive. She was glad when the lights came back on a short while later.
