Snow on the Rooftops

Last night snow began to fall.
The flakes were fine and dry
so I could only see them by looking at the street light.

I had planned to turn the outdoor light on 
and watch through the window,
hoping to see the snow fly through the light.
But I couldn't see anything.
This morning I woke up and the first thing I saw: snow-covered rooftops.

The ones in my neighborhood didn't quite look like this,
but this BBC photo of rooftops in Meissen, Germany
gives you an idea of how charming it was.

Snow-covered rooftops--and sunshine too.
Overnight, we had 3 inches of snow--pristine, 
white, sparkle-in-the-sun-like-diamonds snow.
And because snow is infrequent here,
lots of places closed until tomorrow.
Snow Day!
