Yesterday morning, after the snow stopped and the gray clouds rolled away,
The sun shone out of a clear blue sky, giving me this view through my classroom window.
Pristine, sparkling, Indiana farm land blanketed in white.
Quite a bit of white, as you can see if you look at the base of this trash barrel. Looks like about 8 inches to me.
Look closely, my camera lens captured a few of the diamonds sparkling on top of the snow! Frost jewels.
At home all is snow quiet too. Not a track in sight. The stillness of a snow covered vista is stillness indeed.
But wait - - - - what's that I hear? Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it a chain saw????
Are they monsters? Are they masked gunmen? I hope there won't be a massacre tonight!!!
Oh dear, there went my pristine snow and my undisturbed stillness.
Well, they LOOK friendly, making those thumbs up signs!
Ah ha! It's just three of my Super-Students and two of their friends swooping in on their snowmobiles to say hi.
Left to right they are Erica, Evan, Tyler, Emily and Michael.
Stay tuned - - - Emily and Evan say they're coming back today to swoop ME away on one of those machines.
I'll let you know if the "old lady" survives.
