Gift of snow and sun at day's end / by Carey Pace

We expected three inches.  We got beyond eight! Then I got a double gift by the snow clouds leaving and giving me sunshine at the day's end to try my hand at photographing in sunset snow. It was a dry, powdery snow that wouldn't make a snowball to save your life.  Certainly not a snowman (despite our efforts).  Honestly, it resembled FAKE snow more than real snow. I've never experienced a snow just like this one! 

But it dazzled and sparkled and floated and made my heart skip a beat unlike any other snow I can recall.
