Our area of Minnesota is not exactly know for light and fluffy snow.  Usually when we get snow it comes with wind.  The snow we had on the ground was looking a bit old and dirty, and was mostly ice.  Then, overnight, we had 4 inches fall in near perfect calm.  Before it could blow away I took these pictures.  Enjoy!100_1964 Leaden skies and snow so white it looks blue were what I saw on my morning walk around the yard.100_1965 Pine and cedar are both holding loads of snow.100_1966 This birch trunk even caught some snow.100_1967 A confluence of hackberry branches is covered in this picture100_1968 100_1969 Any horizontal surface holds snow until the wind blows it away.100_1970 A few  leaves on this lilac bush still hang on and hold snow.100_1971 The pond has only a small hole open in the ice, the rest is covered with snow.100_1972 Even the smallest of branches can catch snow.100_1973
