Watching the snow fall…
There’s always been something about snow that gives me the most wonderful energy. I can’t remember a time that the sense of wonder and excitement didn’t come over me as soon as I got the news of an incoming storm. Of course, growing up in Georgia, that didn’t happen too often.
Since living in the northeast, my love affair with snow has not faded even the tiniest bit. If it’s snowing, there’s a good chance I’m out wandering through it’s momentary beauty.
Lucky for me, snow seems to be a common theme this winter in New York City. It surprises me how negative snow’s reputation is around here. Yes it can get messy, it’s accompanied by bitter cold air, repetitive shoveling, etc… but if you stop to look around, it’s really one of the most beautiful sights to see. Your entire world blanketed in a soft glowing white. Snow casts a silence over the city like nothing else… with just the sounds of the winter wind and crunch of fresh snow under your feet.

I hope this inspires you to look at snow differently (if you have a negative view of it), and see what a truly beautiful gift it is!
