The snowflakes were HUGE and looked like pieces of cotton candy. They FLOATED to the ground, kinda the way feathers do in the old cartoons when the cat eats a bird and one of the bird's feathers pops out of the cat's mouth and floats in a zigzag motion to the floor, thus alerting sweet kitty's owner that something is amiss. Geez, guess I could have just said that the snowflakes floated in a zigzag motion to the ground, but apparently I have a need for you to get a truly accurate "mind's eye" picture of my snow-watching experience.
Actually, I don't remember seeing snow like it before and for me to say that it was incredibly beautiful in late February when I've really had enough of it weeks ago (all right, already!) is really saying something.
So let's hear it for Mother Nature! She's pulling new tricks out of her bag even when we thought we'd seen every possible cold weather combination--this winter in particular.
