I've heard 1-3 inches, heard 3-5. It's after 10 p.m. and I just looked outside - nothing yet. I wanted to watch a little of it before bed but I don't think I can wait up much longer. Sleep is rapidly overtaking me.

I like to watch the snow. I sit at the back windows, facing the lake, and sip a cup of tea or mug of hot chocolate while the flakes drift lazily to the ground. The contrast between the cold air coming off the windowpane and the warmth in my cup is sharp but comforting.

Sometimes a cat joins me at the windows, but it's ok to sit there alone. I like the sound of wintery silence, to watch the snow fall but not hear it.

If there's enough on the ground tomorrow, maybe I'll make a snow angel.
