It's Snow Time

Updated on December 25, 2010

When All I Can See Is White

I have seen snow all my life

Don't you think I would get tired of what other people call a white mess

Not me I think its cool and fresh

To see the snow cover every spot how magical is that

It is like someone made even the dirtiest thing clean

The snow kills germs people say

So that can mean no cold or flu for you

The snow starts to accumulate

Five or six inches and the ground no longer exsists

Trees  become huge white statues that glisten in the light 

I just love to watch the kids play

They run and jump

They don't get hurt because it's like they have wonderful white cushions under their butts

Sure I have to scrape the car windows clean and clear a pathway to walk and the car to drive

The beautiful winter landscape quickly hypnotizes me

Even an old barrel looks like a great ball of snow

How everything looks so different from just hours ago

It's like taking pictures of another world that has the temperature turned down a notch

Sometimes the wind will blow and leave snow drifts surprises

They are wild hills of snow that are soft and fluffy

That rise sometimes over our heads

We see animal tracks and become instant imaginary hunters

To see what wild animal visited our home

When we notice the tracks just end

We laugh and off we go to shovel the deck or the stairs that lead to a snow palace

There is no sign that we ever shoveled it before

Like a big eraser everything is wiped clean again

Dressed warm bundled up in a winter jacket a hat and gloves is a must

Even the air we breath seems fresher

We have been given a small taste of winter and more to come

I will soon go in my house and have my first cup of hot chocolate that will warm my insides

But nothing will ever change the happiness that the snow provides

      Dr. Irum Every year I couldn't wait to see the first snow.There was nothing like catching a little fresh snow and eating it.I thought it was water from the cleanest springs.Know I wonder know how clean it could be?But it was the thought that counts.Everything looks so incredible all covered in white.Thank you and I am glad we can share these wonderful times again and again.

      DREAM ON, I'm a snow lover too. It seems so fresh and clean. The dusting of the first snow turns everything beautiful. I don't like to drive on it but I love the crunch when I walk on it. Voted up and beautiful. I love your writing.

      I agree the snow is beautiful from the inside of the house...When it hits the ground as long as it hits the grass. Now if we could only direct the snow to go onto the grass and not the roads so everyone could enjoy the snow with safety...That would be my kind of perfect snow storm !.....Great Hub though keep up the great work !!!

      Christopher Price I have to agree with you when the snow gets high or when it turns to slush.What a trying experience.But when it's white again I forget it all.Lady_E I do love the change of seasons and bring on the snow but then it's also so nice to see it go.Carrie 450 That is absolutely wonderful.I hope you take lots of pictures.I tried something last year that was alot of fun.I went around and took pictures of the first snow and next year I will pick my best pictures and make my own Christmas cards out of them.Sometimes I even use pictures of one of my Aunts houses and see if they notice its their house covered in snow.Thanks so much everybody!!

      This was a wonderful Christmas for me this year as it was snowing softly on Christmas Eve and Christmas day also like a picture postcard. I like the snow at this time of year. I couldn't have asked for more.

      It's nice to see and makes everywhere look magical when it has just fallen. However, I am glad it's not an all year round experience.

      Happy Holidays.

      I must agree that the fresh fallen snow is beautiful, a pristine blanket covering everything and hiding the gray and muted colors of the rutted frozen earth below...kind of like a botox treatment for the landscape!

      If the temperature never dipped below 32 degrees I might like it more. I've suffered through 61 winters so far and have grown to like frigid weather less each year.

      However, to your list of things to like about snow I would add two more items: the silence of a winter's night after a substantial snowfall is deep and wonderful. And second, snow gives me one more thing to complain about when my reasons to bitch are few!

      Happy holidays.
