Snow, snow and more snow!
|Trudging over to Latin class!|
It hasn’t eased up snowing since after 11pm yesterday evening and as I write one of the brothers is out with the snowplough (he was also out at 5.30am this morning to clear the way for the students to go to classes, God bless him!). When I went to bed last evening, it had just begun snowing but this morning when I drew back the curtains, I confess the child in me did a little somersault when I saw that the world was white again! The harshness of the snowstorm was overshadowed by the majesty and innocence it portrayed. The snow blanketed the entire city, covering every nook and corner. Its grace was undeniable. In addition, it kept the population from going about their daily lives so throughout the day I was mindful to ask the guardian angels to protect all those travelling. As it stands, there is probably about 18-20 cm of snow out there. It doesn’t sound like much until you start walking (trudging) through it or when the Council start clearing the paths and it is all piled up like walls!
