It started Sunday night.
On Monday morning we woke up
to wind and snow.
It was Monday morning, so Bruce had to clear
the snow from the car and creep down the hill.
All day, the clouds would lift, and then more
would come spilling over the Sandia front,
like water over a dam.
When the dogs needed out,
it was an expedition,
into the blizzard winds.
Sometimes, the snow fell
almost like rain,
and sleet, and hail.
And then the wind would blow,
and obscure the mountains again.
On a homeschool snow day, we do math while sipping cocoa.
