6.16 Beauty - First Snow

Bestest Friend and I are in the middle of a blog project. Each day of the month we will post a picture on a pre-determined theme and write a little something about it. The theme for the sixteenth day of each month is "Beauty."
Last night, I looked outside while I was taking the litter out (it goes to a dumpster in our attached garage) and saw a beautiful nighttime scene of snowflakes falling on a quiet neighborhood illuminated by orange lights from lamposts, a fraction of an inch accumulation on the ground, and  and just as I was turning around to continue with my errand, I heard it.  The sound of metal against metal as someone crashed their car into something (another car? a sign? the curb? a building?).

Welcome to winter.
The result of this snow is actual beauty.  The trees are covered, the ugly brown of the dead grass is covered by a fresh coat of white, and it looks crisp and sparkling out there. But I can only admit that because we have not had to leave our apartment all weekend long. In the safety of our nice warm house, I feel confident in saying that the snow looks lovely. When I have to scrape the car off after work tomorrow, it's possible I will be singing an entirely different tune.

(This photo? Is a bush right outside our door. I did not go any further than about five steps into the snow.)
To see what Bestest Friend wrote about the theme of the day, check out her blog, Too Legit to Quit.
