Like most of the East Coast, Lewisburg, WV got the first big snowfall. We had 15 to 18" of snow. I love to sit at the window and watch the snow fall. It is such a warm and peaceful feeling.
Zeke, my chocolate lab, and I were out taking our walk in the snow yesterday morning. The feeling of being outside in the snow watching the snowflakes fall and feeling like you are the only person enjoying the moment is so wonderful. Each snowflake is a gem!
There's just something beautiful about walking in snow that nobody else has walked on. It makes you believe you're special. The snow was falling so fast and there was a grey hue all around us. Today, the sun is shining and the snow is sparkling like a million little suns. The snow beautifies everything it covers.
The below quotes remind me of why I love the snow....
“ Snow falling soundlessly in the middle of the night will always fill my heart with sweet clarity." -- Novala Takemoto
“Snow isn’t just pretty. It also cleanses our world and our senses, not just of the soot and grime of a mining town, but also of a kind of weary familiarity, a taken-for-granted quality to which our eyes are all too susceptible.” - John Burnside
“Snow brings a special quality with it—the power to stop life as you know it dead in its tracks.” - Nancy Hatch Woodward
“To appreciate the beauty of a snowflake, it is necessary to stand out in the cold.” - Aristotle
“I love snow for the same reason I love Christmas. It brings people together while time stands still.” --Rachel Cohn
"Advice is like snow - the softer it falls, the longer it dwells upon, and the deeper it sinks into the mind." -- Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Zeke enjoys the snow and loves to roll in it
What I love about the snow is the beauty and tranquility of the snow ... it warms my heart and makes me happy! If you have a nice fresh snowfall, enjoy the moment!
