tonight's sunset

It's the second day of  Spring- 
and we received more snow in the last 20 hours than what has fallen 
over the last few months combined.

The day has been white....no distinction between landscape and horizon lines....snow falling and landing and building up around everything.

Yet for some reason, the sun chose to shine right before it set.
And I caught it.
Driving home from Hockey Awards Night, I stopped (precariously on icy/snow roads), and 
snapped this up.

Now I have sunshine to take me into the 3rd day of spring...even if it's white again tomorrow.

Hope lies under it all somewhere.

To hope is to risk pain.
To try is to risk failure.
To give is to risk being turned away.

And yet,  one could say that the greatest tragedy in life~ is to risk nothing.

Wow, that must be a real hammering of snow. We had more snow than last winter, but still not enough for me to enjoy winter as much as I'd like. Lovely photo!
