It’s kinda difficult not to get slightly elated about the first real snow of the season. Sure, this means you have to scrape your car before leaving for work (unless your a hermit, home-worker like me) and it is no longer wise to go without boots. Still, its just so beautiful – the way that it covers everything with white. This morning, it got out of bed a few hours earlier than normal because it was snow-bright in the bedroom. Plus, the more snow we get, the more use I’ll get out of my new cross-country skis!
Perhaps in two days I’ll be completely over the snow. I am certain that in two months that will be the case. But for now, I am grateful for the simple beauty of white covering everything.
