Snow in the Desert

It’s snowing here in Las Vegas today. Beautiful!

I grew up in southern California and we never saw snow. I was surprised when we moved here and we saw snow in December!t’s snowed about 3 of the 5 Decembers we’ve lived here. Never has it snowed this much, though. It’s been snowing non-stop for over half an hour now, although none of it is staying on the ground. I’m sure a bit further up the street it is sticking a bit, and definitely in the mountains.

While it’s a special and beautiful treat from for us in Vegas, others are getting the harsher side of this aspect of nature.  I’ve been up since 6:30 this morning watching  TV (still recovering from an illness I was struck with two days ago) and have seen the reports of the horrible weather and the damage it’s caused over East and in New England, and in fact even Westward here up in Oregon.

Wiccans like to focus on the more lovely side of Nature, on her beauty and “light”, but there is a more harsh, dark side  that needs to be remembered, respected and honrored too. Today reminds me of that, and I think it’s an important thing to try and keep in mind.
