I love snow!
Kids love snow!
Teachers really love snow!
When the weatherman even hints that snow is on the way, you can just feel the excitement in the air.
Yesterday as I was subbing, I heard teacher after teacher talk about the fact that next week the weatherman is “calling for snow!”
What is it about snow?
For me, I think it is the chance that the world might shut down temporarily causing everyone to simply stay home and cuddle up under blankets and sip hot chocolate.
White roads unmarked by tires or even footprints.
Tree branches drooping with piles of white fluff.
Snow covering up mud puddles and potholes.
The absence of imperfections in my landscaping.
Snow truly “evens out” the world’s good and bad into one big sweeping view of white beauty….
and in that beauty I find peace.
Being able to watch the snow fall is another thing I love. Witnessing the transformation from greens, browns, rocks, gravel, weeds, broken toys, bare branches……….into a white canopy of oneness.
Snowfall offers hope for all things to become “new.”
