Snow is magical to me…it always has been and always will be. It’s fleeting and ephemeral and blankets my world in sparkly mystery. Oh, to sit on the couch with some hot cocoa and watch it fall from the sky is truly one of my favorite things of all time. It doesn’t matter that I am now old enough to be responsible for the shoveling and scraping, or that the time for suspense over whether school will be canceled or not has passed me by, snow still captivates and excites me. There is just something so aesthetically pleasing about looking out at the world all covered in white. It’s just so beautiful & clean, at least until the snow plows come and the snow becomes stained black from car exhaust.
We had a little snow last night, just an inch or so, but what a wonderful sight to wake up to. Sometimes I wish it snowed more around here, but not really….it would be need to be colder longer then and I might become tired of the snow.
