We have a friend who decorates for weddings.
She tells us that her main job is to cover up ugly.
That is what the first snow of the season does in GriggsDakota.
It brings a layer of beauty.
It accents the bare starkness brought by Fall.
Winter around here never looks like this for long.
Eventually snow joins with everything else and becomes part of the mundane.
But for today, trees and tracks are beautiful and all the ugly is all covered up. We will enjoy it.
