Snow today

Today was the first class of my drawing course at North Island College, Fine Arts 111 Drawing and 2-Dimensional Language II.
We will be studying perspective for the first half of the term, and we were supposed to be having a slide show and lecture on Escher, but by afternoon it was snowing heavily, so the class was cut short and we all headed home.
Traffic was slow and careful on the lower road to the ferry, but still two cars had gone off the road - eek.
Now that I am home safe and sound and leftovers are warming up in the oven, the view outside to the snow is very pretty with Christmas outdoor lights still shining along the arbour fence.
