Snow! la neige!

The other day as I was driving home, I noticed how the entire valley was covered in beautiful white snow. I'm still not over the beauty of this snow and don't think I ever quite will be. Snow is truly one of the most beautiful creations on this earth. After heavy snow storms, my favourite part about snow is how the trees look. Snow makes everything look magical. Walking under snow covered trees and standing underneath a snowy tree. I love seeing all the tiny droplets of melted snow that hang off trees. Certain snow covered trees have an ability to resemble cherry blossoms in Japan. Only I'm not in Japan, I'm in Utah. I've been to many places, but I must say all this snow makes me live in a wonderful world.

Totally! Snow is the only thing that gets me through winter. I hate the cold, hate the gray, but a freshly fallen snow... makes it all worth it. I especially like it when the snow clings to branches, and so all the trees, every last twig, are frosted with perfect snow. just love it!

Me too. I like how you write poetically. haha

Last time it snowed that is exactly how I felt. The world feels different when you see freshly fallen snow, as if it is a new beginning. Just like you said, freshly fallen snow is magical. There is no other way to describe it.

Wow! I've never thought of falling snow as a new beginning. That is quite an interesting thought. I'm glad we connect and have the same views on snow.
