Dear Cousin,

 

The night is still and starkly cold. A crust of ice on the snow crunches underfoot as I walk through a quiet, frozen world.

Dear Cousin,

 

Winter weather has descended upon our hills today, with snow that has steadily fallen since morning. Sometimes it was fine flakes that came straight down from the heavens, and then it would change to big, fluffy flakes that drifted to and fro as they settled upon hill and meadow alike. Mom always remarked that "Old Mother Goose is shaking her feather bed," and indeed it looked like floating feathers as they gently came down.
