April snow brings life
April snow is heavy stuff. Most of the winter snow here in Colorado is fluffy and light, so that even shoveling a foot of snow isn't overwhelming. However, spring snow is loaded with moisture, and this year we've had a very dry winter, so it's welcome. It was awfully heavy to shovel, though! All things considered, I'd rather be shoveling moisture-rich snow after a long drought than using a broom on fluffy stuff. We expect that the brown tones will turn to green in the next few days because of this blessing of life-nurturing water. May we be the water of life to one another and to the thirsty world this day!
