Today I was reminded of the famous print by Katsushika Hokusai, Under the Wave off Kanagawa (Kanagawa oki nami ura). The wind came up from the South a little after sunrise and lifted the snow off of rooftops and hillsides.

I could only wish the snow had been drier. There’s an indescribably beauty to living up north with snowdevils and the glittering bursts of snow the move like sparkling clouds through the trees.

    • In Vermont, every autumn and at the start of winter, a Darwinian natural selection weeds out the bad drivers. There’s always a flurry of accidents, upside down trucks, ditched Lexuses (or is that Lexi?) and Subarus hanging from trees. Once the incompetent have been weeded out of the back-road gene pool, winter normally proceeds without much incident.
