First Snow in New Jersey !

I shot this image of my street a few minutes ago. We had a heck of a snowstorm here in New Jersey - snow fell throughout the night into the morning - with hurricane force wind. Some areas received almost thirty inches.

If you don't have to travel, a snowstorm is the perfect opportunity to stay home - to pray, to read, - have a nice cup of hot chocolate. In my case, I get some needed time to complete my Canon Law homework.

Here is a wonderful and appropriate poem by Robert Frost, "A Dust of Snow"...

The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree

Has given my heart
A change of mood
And saved some part
Of a day I had rued.
