the first snow!
I don’t understand why people grumble so much this time of the year. Okay, yes I do. Because eventually, I grumble too. But not for the first snow! Lovely little white flakes are falling from the sky for the first time this fall.
I love the first snow. It’s best if it actually accumulates and covers the world around me with a sparkling white dust, but it’s okay if it’s like today when it doesn’t stick very much. It’s still lovely. I adore the smell of it…and the way it floats to the ground.
Talk to me in three months when I’m stranded in Des Moines for a week…I won’t think it’s so majestic.
But today? It’s snowing!
