72. Walking on Top of the Snow

Yes, I’m back to work.  However, today was my late shift, 12:30 to 9:00.  On those days, I like to go for a walk before work.  And today there was still snow!

I wondered if I should really go for a walk, since I wouldn’t be able to take a nap to recover.  Wading through deep, deep snow is exhausting!

But when it came down to it, the sun was shining brightly, and I couldn’t resist.  The snow won’t last forever.  Yesterday, a lot of melting happened, and now the snow has rounded bumps all over.  Last night, there was a hard freeze, though, so I was a little worried about ice on the sidewalks.

Well, I was able to keep from slipping on the sidewalks.  But when I got to the snow, I found a wonderful side effect of the freeze last night — Now I could walk on top of the snow!


This picture shows the difference in the amount my feet sank into the snow on Tuesday on the left and today (Thursday) on the right.

Amazing how much less work it was to walk on the snow today!  And it’s still tremendously beautiful.
