Sunrise after the snow ... winter wonderland in Shenandoah Valley

Thursday morning's sunrise over the Blue Ridge Mountains after Wednesday's snowstorm. This view is from our deck.
Daylight brings a beautiful winter wonderland of snow-flocked trees and 10" of snow on the ground.
Snow flakes glisten Wednesday night. Photo taken from front porch.
Tree limbs droop under heavy, wet snow.
"It is better to light a single candle than to curse the darkness." Our electricity went out at 4:35 Wednesday afternoon and finally returned during the night. Candles, flashlights, and battery-operated lanterns brightened our night, and the woodstove kept us warm.
