Beautiful Winter Day on Red Mill Pond

It started snowing late last night and continued all morning.  It’s beginning to taper off now and the sun occasionally breaks through the murk overhead.  There is still a dark and looming overcast.  I can’t help but wonder what the clouds look like from on top.  They are so full of snow, they must look like some kind of brilliant white fluffy blanket.
