Picnic in the snow 7D-0867_StaatsOur wintry landscape added another 10 inches of snow last Monday and Tuesday.  The snow started lightly but it quickly became much heavier, and continued for almost 24 hours.  The end result was a beautifully outlined landscape with snow up to your knees and drifts that were deeper.  After it was over, I ventured to the picnic grounds at Como Park.  The snow was piled deep to the benches, leaving the picnic tables to appear like they were floating atop the drifted snow.  And the trees were graced with the wet snow that was clinging to their bark and branches.  It was quiet and peaceful at this time, waiting for the transition from winter to spring and the people who will be flocking to the area for picnics in the park.
