What is it about snow? We grouse about winter and the hazards it brings, the snow, the ice, the freezing temperatures, the snow, the snow, the snow.
But don’t you feel like an excited child when you see that first snowflake dancing its way down from the sky? Your eyes grow big and a little grin creeps across your face. You can’t tear your eyes away from the outside world even for a couple of minutes. The noise of the day seems to slink off and quiet settles over everything.
It’s magic happening right before your eyes.
Even as I write this post, there’s snow come down outside my window. I’ve texted Meghan and David already and I danced a jig with Langley. I feel like a kid on Christmas morning right now. I need to put away groceries and start the laundry, clean the house, but all I want to do is stare out the window with a silly ol’ grin on my face.
these two photos were shot back in 2011 when we had over 24 inches come down in one day. and i think mother nature snowed herself out that year because we’ve barely had any snow since. but i still get excited when we have even a small storm tip toe through our little corner of the world.
