Let it Snow, Let in Snow, Let in Snow

We have not had much snow to speak of this winter. It has been quite cold but without snow the cold seems worse.

It is now snowing and will be for the next couple of days. We are to get up to 10 inches, if the weatherman is to be believed.

The snow looks beautiful. It covers the brown of dormant grass and naked trees. I think of the movie Dr Shivago and the snow somehow is romantic. It is soft as if floats down from the white sky. It covers the deck with a comforter of white.

On Monday, when I head out to work, it probably won't seem nearly as romantic as I slip and slide and worry about someone else running in to me. It won't seem so romantic when I am scraping my car's windows and freezing my face and hands.

But for now, I am enjoying watching it come down and cover the ground and thinking that a nice hot cup of coffee would be perfect right now.


  1. I love the snow...but I don't love the thought of school being cancelled tomorrow -- then I'll have to take a "vacation" day from work (not my idea of a vacation!).

  2. Somehow the snow this year has been strangely invigorating. I'm not usually one who fancies the snow, but this year is different. See? I'm even using the word "fancies" to talk about it!
