Aglow with Snow (Start)

I have been watching the snows paint our rolling hills, and though this means mostly whiteness everywhere, we do have frequent pink, glowing skies at sunset, even in the dead of winter. Earth radiates its own warmth no matter the weather. Tomorrow, you will be able to see the finish of this small painting which will include snow capped mountains. Can you imagine the scene?
