I’m not an ardent fan of winter…I don’t enjoy snowy sports and I detest driving in the icy conditions that accompany this, my least favorite season.  Still, it sure is pretty, isn’t it?  Especially the first snowfall of the season and the scene I’ve snipped in from our backyard.

For today (and today only – I make no promises about receiving snow with a sunny disposition from this point forward), I’m going to curb my urge to complain and enjoy nature’s frosting.  There IS something magical about the quietness of snow.  It’s as if the world is being hushed, just a tad.  And I love it.

Happy Tuesday…no matter the weather where you are.

Vicki 😊

  1. Ah, it’s so pretty! Especially the first morning it arrives. Does Sadie scamper about in it getting a little bit on her nose?

    I love how you’ve named the quiet. It hasn’t snowed here but just reading this post has given me a moment of that quietude! Thank you, Vicki!

    1. You are really something, Wynne! I almost added to the post with a mention of Sadie’s delight…sweet old gal that she is…licking up the fresh snow. She loved it — and that’s where the “frosting” thought came from. YOU are uncanny — so tuned in!

  2. Aww, so pretty. I’m like you, I love snow up to the first snowfall. After that, all bets are off. I’ve lived in the Northeast most of my life and I suspect my dislike of snow is because of all the years having to slog through snowstorms to get to or from work. There’s nothing like a 40-minute commute that turns into a 2-hour 20 mph sojourn all because of two inches of snow. Love it on the ground, hate it on the road. We were originally supposed to get our first dusting tonight, but it looks like it’s just going to be rain now. Anyway, love the snow today, hate it tomorrow. I’m with you.

    1. Ohhh….I hear you about the driving and slow, slow commutes. Mind numbing. And you’re right — it’s not bad at first but winters in the Northeast and Midwest are long…and I prefer it when snow waits until December to arrive. You know, decorative snow! 😉 Thanks, Brian. Hope you’re having a good day!
