Let It Snow?
This snow fall is Gorgeous, BUT! We are all tired of driving in the mess it leaves on the roads. Perhaps it could snow only on the grassy areas. That would be nice. I like how our neighbors in the Southern States take it easy when they have bad winter weather. I feel they are pretty smart to take this time to romp in the white stuff or snuggle together next to a fire instead of driving thru it to work. Ok, Maybe I am dreaming a bit? Do you remember the snow days of our youth? That wonderful feeling when you did not have to go to school? And everyone was out playing in it? I remember one in particular... my Dad and many of the other fathers in the neighborhood went around shoveling out each of their driveways together. I must say that this household as well as several of our neighbors have helped shovel, yes shovel, drives and walks. Then there is the snow blower, we all like helping out with that wonderful invention also.
Yes, it is beautiful. It also provides much needed moisture for the spring and summer as snow all over our nation will finally start to drip, drip and trickle into the creeks and river beds. Bright green grass and buds of spring bulbs start to peek out from the ground, giving us hope again.
