My yard looks like a giant carrot cake frosted with cream cheese. Last night the snow fairies dropped white sugar icing all over the limbs of the trees, the grass and the clay mud that is peeking out of a few places where the white is spread thin. Some of the tree branches are coated in clear ice and the sun makes them sparkle like chandeliers. I know the mud is still under there somewhere but it doesn’t matter. Today the world looks clean.
