I’m probably in the minority here, but I just love watching the snow fall.
This week, they predicted that we would get about 2 to 4 inches of snow. As the snow approached, they began to change their predictions. It was going to be a “hit or miss” depending on where you lived. When I woke up Tuesday, I looked outside and was disappointed that I could still see the grass. Light snow was falling, but nothing accumulated.
I will say that I’m not a fan of driving in the snow, mostly because most people don’t know how to drive in it. I’m also not a big fan of shoveling it. That’s why we bought a snowblower a few years ago. However, my snowblower stopped working last year before the last big snow. My father in law picked it up this afternoon and said he’d see if he could figure out what the problem was. I’m hoping that he can figure it out. If not, I’ll be off to the store to get a new one (with electric start this time!).
I love the way the snow sticks to the tree branches after a snowfall. I just love the way it looks. It is no wonder so many artists paint snow scenes. There is something about the “quiet” of a snow fall, too. I often find myself outside before shoveling or starting the snowblower and just looking at the snow falling and appreciating the peace and quiet that accompanies it.
As I have said in the past, I love the fact that here in Michigan we get to experience all four seasons. Each one is magical in its own way. With spring, we see nature’s rebirth. Summer brings warm sunshine. Fall brings about the amazing colors on the trees. Winter brings about cold and its own beauty.
While I was disappointed that there was no snow this week, I also know that I live in Michigan and that there will be plenty in the weeks ahead. I look forward to the first coating of snow….
