It's funny that after over 30 years in Illinois it took my retirement for me to stop and marvel at the miracle of snowflakes. I knew it was always there. You could see its miniature beauty when it would land on my black coat. But I didn't take the time to really study them. But now as I contemplate our move to Hawaii and the prospect that I would no longer be able to see them, the crystal wonders are even more precious. I'm looking out my window and it looks sunny and bright. Today is the first day of spring! But this is the midwest. We're expecting a snowstorm tomorrow! Who knows? Maybe I'll get a last chance to enjoy the miracles of winter.
