“Look round and round upon this bare bleak plain, and see even here, upon a winter's day, how beautiful the shadows are!" Charles Dickens
The drive into town a few days ago resembled my vision of "the lone and dreary world". The heavy grey sky seemed so dark and bleak for being 10 a.m.! But even so, I appreciate how the snow adds an element of austere beauty to the normally barren scene. I hope the snow returns soon.
