First snow

What is it about the first snow of the year that fills me with childlike happiness and wonder?

Is it because I’m a skier and I love winter?  Or that I have great memories as a kid building our first snowmen of the winter? Whatever it is I love the first snow.

The view of the park from the back deck this morning is wonderous.  A blanket of white shrouds everything in stillness.  The snow on the trees lights up when the sun hits them.  It’s so beautiful.

I look forward to getting out for a walk in the white stuff today.  Time to pull out my winter boots!

For those of us fortunate enough, enjoy your first snow !
