Gone snowshoeing (a kind of Swiss dance)

Nearly. Getting ready. Lacing my shoes. Here's why:

But before I go, here are some of the ways we measure snowfall in the Swiss Alps.

By the single swingful -

By the double swingful -

Or by the snow on the rocks above the pond, where the indifferent waterfall carries on working -

Off I go. I can hear that snowy music calling me! It's got a kind of swish-swish beat alternating with whoooooosh that might have to do with all the skiers and sledders on the mountainside today.

blue and beautiful. We ended up with a dumping this morning, but I'd rather leave it for those mountains!
