Sometimes snow sweeps in like a thunderstorm. At other times it looks like this, a big gray-white cloud that oh so slowly settles lower and expands in your direction. After a while, the mountain in the distance fades away. A short time later, tiny snowflakes fall, then larger ones. That’s what happened here a little while ago. Quietly, calmly, not a breath of wind. Like someone turned a dial and the air got thick and wet.
