Snowbound


It started to snow last Thursday and six days later, it is still snowing.  I feel like I am living inside a snow globe and can't get out.  The roads are open but remain empty and silent.  A stillness pervades like nothing I have ever experienced.  The world has come to a stop.  Frozen in time.  Encased in crystal.
The locals tell us they have not experienced this much snow in the Columbia River Gorge for years.  We are all in a state of wonder.   Because there are so many travel advisories, we decide to stay home.  We don't even drive the five miles into Hood River for supplies. We have enough canned soup to last a few more days.  Why go anywhere?  Right now the magic is inside this snow globe in this little corner of the world.

 There is no place else I'd rather be.
