Cool, clear, water

After a week of light rain and temperatures in the low thirties, early this morning an Arctic air mass moved into our area shaking hands with the moist air that remained in place, slowly floating snow down through the now frigid air and leaving a fresh white blanket on the ice-coated ground. I’m glad to see the snow but not quite as pleased about the sub-zero temperatures that will prevail for the next several nights. However, cool, clear water like this (reminding me of the song “Cool Water” made popular by Marty Robbins)

Weeksville Creek in winter

would have looked awfully good on some of those blistering hot and dry summer days far back in the Arizona desert.
