First Snow of the Season

"Let it snow, let it snow!"

Tonight was the first snow of the season. There wasn't enough to cover the ground, but for a few moments it was white. Softly, falling, dancing. "Me and snow, we go way back." (Lorelai Gilmore, Gilmore Girls)

It's become a tradition of sorts for me to go out into the first snow and just stand, if only for a few seconds. It is my favourite time of the year. It is so quiet. The night the snow first falls, the world is at peace and the air smells crisp. I love it when snow falls on my face. I love feeling it fall and linger onto my eyelashes until it melts and I need to blink 'else the water will trickle into my eye.

I love scarves and mittens (not gloves) and boots and coats. I love hot chocolate and cold winter nights and coming back inside after near frost-bite. I love the tingle in my fingers as the blood in my body warms up. I just love snow.

I feel much the same as Lorelai on the matter. 'The world changes colour,' to quote her exactly. 'I'll take [snow] in any form.'

The first snow is exhilarating. It is wonderful. It is miraculous. Oh, how I love it!

I loved Gilmore girls too. I missed the last season though, so I have no idea what happen in the end. Oh well... there's always the DVDs.

Oh yeah! I love snow too! Up until Jan 2. Then I've had 'nough:o)!
