The First Snowfall
Today I woke up to my husband asking me to get up and move my car, as I was blocking his car in our driveway. I grumbled and groaned and buried myself further down into the blankets, until he said: "Also, just so you know, your car is covered in snow". Instantly I was out of bed, filled with excitement and wonder, as I needed to see this to believe it. Though I always complain about being cold and hating winter, I love snow.
There is nothing more pretty in nature; snow in big, undisturbed piles is so serene, and there is something so calm about going for a walk in the snow. I simply love when snow coats the trees, and sticks to each individual branch in a sparkly dusting of white. And I adore each individual snowflake - there is something so wondrous to me about how each individual snow flake is different than the other - as each are simply their own piece of beauty.
So I was delighted to see that my husband was not over-exaggerating, and that there was indeed about a centimeter of snow on my car, his car, the ground, and the rooftops across the street. Over night without warning out whole world had been softly blanketed. How beautiful!
