As a writer, sometimes I struggle with what I am going to put up for the next day - yes, I know: this is a self-imposed problem as no-one requires that I post something every day but myself. But I find the exercise to be a good one for at least enforcing consistency in effort if nothing else (and, maybe, I am getting a bit better at actually being able to write).
But there are times - like with snow - that suddenly the subject presents itself and all I have to do is write.
As a follow-on, after I departed The Ranch there was a day of rain, then another three days of heavy snow. The snow continued; maxing out at about 2'. Power has been out since last Tuesday (and not expected to be restored until this coming Tuesday; Uisdean Ruadh and his mother have sought warmer climes until the return of power.
The video below was shot just before I left on Saturday. The change in the surroundings after the snowfall had ended - from complete silence to melting and slipping of snow off trees - was noticeable.
I continually am amazed how - in every season, The Ranch has its own beauty.
