When I woke up one morning I saw the fields on the other side of the river were white! I had not seen them like that. I think it will happen more often but it was special to see for the first time!
I think the white is actually hail; the day before I had had an enormous amount of the stuff fall on my head during my commute. And I knew more had been falling after I came home. So it's not as romantic as snow but it still looks good!
