First Snow

First Snow (taken with iPhone)

We woke up this morning to the first snow of the season. I love the snow!!! It was only about a 1/2 to 1 inch but that’s okay by me.

Snow brings out the kid in me. Anytime you can find something to allow the child within to come out is a good thing.

Some people complain about the snow but not me. Never.

I was not raised in a a part of the country that got regular snowfall. I believe that until I moved to California I had only seen snow three times in my life.

So, living up here in the northeast part of the country is a completely different experience. I always wait with anticipation for the first snowfall. For me, it means winter is finally here in a serious way and there is nothing wrong with that.

Walking or hiking in the woods during a snowfall is an incredibly peaceful experience. The snowflakes seem to mute all sound so it is extremely quiet and everything is still.

Last year I was inspired to write a poem called Snow Sounds.

Have a great day!
