It started this afternoon, and forecasts say it might actually stick around! The ground is actually covered with a light dusting of white, and it’s pretty blustery out.
There are a lot of cons to snow (digging out your car, scraping off your icy windshield in the morning, skidding around corners while driving… okay, most of them are car-related) but the big plus to the first snow is: it’s beautiful! Before everything turns into that brown slushy stuff by the side of the road and sidewalks, it’s really quite pretty.
Now I’m in the mood for candy-cane, pepperminty flavoured things, and for warm bowlfuls of soup. For crunching through the snow in a warm pair of boots, and getting snowflakes in your hair.
If it sticks around tomorrow, I’ll try to get a nice photo – right now it’s too dark out to really see.
