A canopy of white

Snow still decorates the trees. As I drove to work this morning, I passed through a canopy of trees, off-season bare branches covered in a layer of white, sparkling against a brightening blue sky.

I am always surprised when a light fluffy snow accumulates on branches and stays for a while. When the snow is wet, I expect it to stick, but dry? I suppose calm air and relatively cold temperatures preserves the snow for a while. I thought that the trees would be bare again by now.
