“The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?” ~ J.B Priestley
We finally had our first snow. This year it came earlier than last year, which fell on Christmas day. This year the first snow fell the night before Thanksgiving, giving us a beautiful day of wonder on our national day of thanks.
Today we got hit by another snow storm.
This one long lasting with giant flakes. It's only now just calming down, so much so that the dark night is no longer glowing white.
I love the snow when I'm indoors, safe, looking out the window in a warm place.
A trip to Costco this afternoon wasn't so bad.
But tonight, when my Mom and I needed to make another run to the store, the weather took a whiteout turn for the worst as we drove passed 4 to 5 accidents. Watching snow is peaceful, but driving in snow is something I'll never quite get use to.
Still, tomorrow morning will be beautiful.
I'm excited to see the fresh snow lit brightly by sunlight, sparkling like glitter.
