Snow, Glorious Snow!

If you follow me on either Twitter or Facebook, you’ll know that we’ve had a very white Christmas this year. Two major winter storms have passed through within a week, and someone I met along the trail today says that a third is on its way. A lot of folks in the area are crying “uncle!” and claiming that we have more than enough of the white stuff…I, on the other hand, am having a total blast with it.

Yes, it’s true, I did whine about the onset of winter, but the truth is that once it settled in (and I got used to the idea!), I remembered how much I love it. Especially days like today. Clear skies, a good eight inches of fresh powder, brilliant sunshine, cold but not disgustingly so, and my first time out this year on snowshoes.

It was glorious.

    So pretty! I really do miss snow. On the rare occasions we get it here, it’s usually gone in a day (typically not more than an inch or two to start with). As a Massachusetts native, the year doesn’t feel ‘complete’ without a snowy winter. You’re so lucky to have had a white Christmas!
