Looking out over the neighborhood from upstairs this morning, I saw white, lots of it. No, not snow, but frost. All the roofs were covered, as were fences, lawns and cars. Magic!
The temperature was right around 32°F so I knew this wouldn’t last long. I grabbed my camera and tripod and took a quick series of photos. As I’m writing this, a couple of hours later, the frost is gone, the sun is out, and we’re having a picture postcard winter morning.
Special moments are so ephemeral.
