Waves of snow

The weather has been so cold that the snow hasn't got that soft texture that makes you feel like making a snowman. Instead, it swirled around my feet like chalk dust every time the wind blew. I didn't wear snowshoes when I took my walk through the woods because even though the snow was fairly deep, it wasn't very heavy: I just kept kicking it to the side as I walked. As I returned to the house and looked back across the yard, the snow that drifted in the blue afternoon shadows made me think of the sea.

I love how blue shadows look on snow.
