My White Wonderful World

It’s blizzard time again in New England. I woke up this morning with wind gusts of 60+ mph, white-out conditions, negative wind chills, and snow being measured in feet, not inches. Yikes! Sure, these are the days when I wonder why I live here. Β It’s brutal out there. But . . . the sun will come out tomorrow, and that’s when the magic happens.snow-fence

There is nothing like seeing the world with a fresh blanket of white snow, illuminated by the morning sunlight. The dull-brown tones of mid-winter disappear and suddenly everything is bright.

Every little twig, dried leaf, and outreached branch has been painted super white . . . a beautiful winter masterpiece.

It’s the best time to bundle up and get out and explore your whole new world . . .

And feel like a kid again. Why not run through that untouched field of snow?snow-field

Or make a new winter friend?

Sure, snow can be a hassle . . . but snow is also a gift . . . a temporary gift. Time to make the most of it, and enjoy what has been handed to you. Time to have some fun!

  1. Here in drought-stricken SoCal, I long for the cold, for wind that is not worrisome as the cause of fire, for changes in the seasons. I used to live where 6 feet of snow was a “mild” winter – but that was when I was a kid and didn’t drive! These are wonderful reminders of the magical world of winter, even as I look for the small new things that come to life after one of our rare rains. Nicely done!
