the rain stippled the snow

when i woke up this morning this is what i found...the rain fell on the soft melting snow and then froze...the snow in the front yard is all stippled just like a quilt...
 the snow was frozen...difficult for large animals as it creates a crust which is hard on their legs...small animals and kids just run right on top
 the deer tracks from yesterday all melted and frozen
 it just looked so cool crisp and glittery...kind of like sugar on cookies
a small spot of colour from the hummingbird feeder...which i don't use because it drips sugar water everywhere...although the ants love it
