Morning Walk

Sable and I just arrived back home after our morning walk--it was lovely! It was snowing for our entire walk. It had just begun to snow a short while before we went outside, so there was only a little more than a dusting of snow sticking to the ground, sidewalks, and streets.

The only sounds I could hear were Sable's softly padding paws and the "huh-huh" of her breath as she strained slightly on the leash, the metallic "krunch-krunch" of my Yaktrax clad boots assuring me of a safe walk, and the distant "thrum-thrum" of vehicles speeding along the tollway.

And still, amidst the all the various sounds I could hear the soft "splich-splich" of the wet snow hitting the ground. The snow was quickly gathering on tiny tree branches which couldn't support the wet snow's weight and it was falling like leaden rain drops creating lacy patterns in the already accumulated snow.

A beautiful, "noisy", morning winter walk!
