sugar snow

warm enough today to forego the boots and wear sneakers. tomorrow will be warmer still. but tonight we have snow. sugar snow they call it. the term has something to do with cold-enough-to-snow weather embedded within a warm spell and how it prolongs the maple sugaring season already begun here in new england. i dont understand the science of it all. i just know that, even if it is a late winter snow, i still love to look at it. and that it will melt away as quickly as it arrived.
