These posts are sent out from North East Pennsylvania (United States!) The winter here can be long and difficult, but thus far there's been hardly a flake of snow, let alone a blizzard. Still, some weeks ago there was a traditional mix of sleety-snow which lasted just a few minutes and then was gone. I ran and filmed a bit of it with my phone-camera: the little fir tree having been planted last spring. Then the lovely carol for the Christmas Season came to mind. The snow, the tree, the lyrics come together beautifully. If you listen carefully you can even hear the snow!
