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.
