Our spring snow is here

It is positively beautiful out. The new snow has covered all the ugly black ice that emerged over the past few weeks as spring prepared for breakup.  I guess it’s not really breakup unless the stuff melting is black and smelly.  In that category, Anchorage wins hands down for best breakup in the world.

But for just a few more weeks….days?…we have a magically white wonderland with the trees and bushes wearing crowns of white and even the old parked cars on people’s lawns taking on a not horribly ugly persona for a little while. 

Beauty is, after all, very, very relative.
