nieve

It began snowing last night--it stopped this morning and began blowing around, resulting in drifts in some places.
I had to go to work, though while the main highways are very clear, the side streets and roads have been mostly snow covered.
The sun came out and melted some of the snow on the road, but the temperature is dropping quickly, so the snow will most likely turn to ice tonight.
Despite the potential danger on the roads, the snow is so beautiful, its white shiny metallic surface glistening off the sunshine and making the day just a little bit brighter.
The garden is in back--for perspective.
