The last few mornings I've been outside early in the blue glow of dawn, checking to see if the ice has melted completely off the pond. The snow stayed early this year, forming a pebbled crust and I missed seeing the ice forming, with its wonderful patterns of wings. I have been so hoping that the ice would melt and then freeze again before the snow came, but this morning there is a white blanket covering the pond.
