Snow Is Coming!

Okay, I am very very excited about the possibility of snow flurries this Thursday. My favorite thing to do (if it snows at night) is to take my dogs out for a walk alone through my neighborhood. Almost everyone living around here puts up lights after Thanksgiving, which adds to the already amazing and breathtaking view. I like to pay special attention to the way my boots sink into the first inch of fresh snow. It seems to hold my weight until I'm about put my next foot down, and then it collapses with a 'crunch'. Of course there is no echo without hard surfaces for sound to bounce off, so it's a muffled crunch. And as I look up beneath a street light, the snow falls in patterns that surround me, and the atmosphere is as quiet as my ears have witnessed in a long time.

I love how the dog walker with the gift is mirrored by the teddy bear with the gift...and both look so happy. While the couple in their nice warm car are grumpy.

Love it!

My favorite thing about snow (when I lived in North Carolina) was to grab my hapless kitty and let him play in the snow. He hates it and does this funny hopping run like a bunny to get out of it. Ok that probably makes me a very bad person but its pretty funny and I always give him some tuna fish to kiss and make up afterwards.

We in the Pacific NW valleys get totally freaked out and screwed up with the coming of snow, so I admire your attitude. Hope the snow is beautiful.

Send us some snow if you get it! Up here in NH we are having to manufacture the snow for the slopes.
Your image is as lovely and full of fun as ever!
