The perfect snow

When Heather and I started out on our walk this morning we were joking about how the weather is never what it’s forecast to be.  But it was very mild  — 0 degrees — with barely any wind and just a few snowflakes drifting down around us.

As we got further into our walk, though, the snow began to get heavier.  Soon, it was that beautiful snow, the kind we remember from our childhood.  Big, soft, white, fluffy flakes that tickle your face as they land.  They stuck to my glasses and drifted into my mouth while I talked, making me choke a little.  But, it was nice.  We laughed and enjoyed watching the snow plummet down to the ground where it swirled and danced around our steps.

This is the kind of winter I like!  If it could always be this beautiful and heart-lifting I’d never complain.  Yes, there will be shoveling to do later, but it will be fun –like shoveling feathers.

My picture is a poor one, shot from my balcony door — all I had time for in the rush to get this done and then get ready for work.   Hope it conveys some of the beauty I enjoyed this morning.
