Sometimes you'll see a tasteful snowfall, the kind that lends a touch of elegance to everything it falls upon. Today's snowfall was more like what you'd expect if you gave trowels to a group of overenthusiastic six-year-old giants and told them to cover everything with white stuff. Trees burdened with sloppy clumps of wet snow bent over each other, wondering when the kids would come back and hoping they'd show more restraint next time. Last night one of the local trees leaned on wires and sparked, prompting neighbors to call the fire department. An overloaded transformer buzzed and flared in protest, but on our street there was only one brief flicker of the lights, for which I am grateful.

While I was walking, big, fluffy flakes fell from big, puffy clouds and the sun played hide-and-go-seek with the birds. With temperatures going above freezing, a lot of the snow was melting as more snow was falling. Roads and most of the sidewalks were clear. Area schools are closed tomorrow. As much as I love snow and normally approve of snow days, I am seriously hoping that nothing keeps me from going to that dentist appointment tomorrow.

Status report: For the third day in a row I have had no noticeable bleeding. Woohoo! Still have swelling and pain, though it's less uncomfortable now than it has been. I've been very tired this weekend, which may be because of the painkiller, because my body's fighting an infection, or because panicking all week used up more energy than I had to spare. Hopefully that nice bag of imitation crab meat I bought today will help me to get through whatever the new week is bringing. Imitation crab meat + avocado + plain yogurt = love.
