What is it about the first fall of snow?
Can’t quite explain but it is a most magical feeling. According to the weather forecast it’s falling everywhere near where I live (even on WordPress – lol) but not here. Sigh!
Journal Entry ~ It is night outside, right now as I write this. Very dark outside. Overcast. No moon glow, just cold and windy and no snow. But if I were to step outside, right this very minute and begin to see snow falling, slowly at first and then faster and in ever thickening delicate flakes and swirls – I know my heart would sing. I would feel a lightness to my being and a joy that this wetness sticking to my hair and face was giving me “mother nature” kisses of love. I would be most happy for this event. ~

(I’ve always felt that the very best time for it to snow is during the holiday season. Unless you have to drive in it of course lol – Still …) I will stay hopeful. Everyone be safe, warm and filled with festive thoughts this day and all the month long.
Thank you for your visit!

I always loved snow and the fact that I’ve been born on the first snow of the year might have been a helpful poke towards my favorite thing, snow.
I’m sure the fuzzy snow flakes will visit you soon, Penny 🙂
And writing about snow, I’m glad I found your blog. I’m off to poke around it.
I feel the same way leonaa. Explore away, glad to have you here! 🙂

Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!
I’m hoping I will finally unbox my new snow blower, I bought it Fall of last year.lol
I hope you do get to use it, at least for a brief period of time!
That’s on my wish list for Christmas too!
xx 🙂 🙂 xx
Hope we both receive our wishes for this one! 🙂 xx
I hope so too!!!
Living as we do now, we avoid the snow but I know what you mean. Stepping out into that first snow, with everything scrubbed clean and a quieting blanket laid down, a meditative feeling settles over me. When we spent a couple of years in Yellowstone winter was a magical time and snow was always in abundance. 🙂
Yes, it is such a truly wonderful feeling isn’t it LuAnn! 🙂 xx
I went out today to meet with my sister, and as we were heading to the police station it started snowing 🙂
That is so cool Alastair! 🙂
I love it when it snows. We had a brief snow on a Friday about a month ago. A few years ago on December 7th we had 18″ overnight. Our average snowfall is about 11″. I am patiently waiting,,,and waiting…and waiting…There is nothing like the kiss of the snowflake! Hugs my dear friend – B
Thanks Barb, hugs right back atcha’ my friend! 🙂 xx
The first snowfall heralds the season of cheer
But he feels somewhat restive
And distinctly unfestive
When the first snowball catches him in the ear
It’s those big ears, you need reallllllly large ear muffs I guess! 🙂
You write in such a beautiful style that it gives me a feel of the season. I’ve never experienced snowfall ever as it doesn’t snow here in Mumbai. The picture you shared is so welcoming and makes me want to stand under the snow-showering sky. Perhaps, someday!
You too enjoy the blissful snow-filled festive season Penny.
Thank you Asha, I will wish for you to experience this excellent feeling sometime in your lifetime, You also have a wonderful month filled with happy events and shared moments with loved ones ~ Penny, sending warm hugs to you!
Thank you Penny! Warm hugs back to you all the way from Mumbai! Enjoy! 😀
Ummm, I felt that hug Asha, thank you so much, hugging back! 🙂
You are so lucky that snow falls in your area. I’m here in L.A. and it never snows here. 🙂
I want to experience real snow someday. 🙂
