And so it begins again

It snowed yesterday, not a lot, just enough to leave a thin blanket of white everywhere. Skies are a grey-white to match. I can hear a neighbour shoveling snow from the sidewalk, that trademark
metal-against-concrete scraping sound. Actually it's plastic, but at these temperatures it may as well be metal.

There is something very comforting and peaceful about all that white, all that stillness.

Ah, I remember lying in bed as a child and waking to that world of silence, everything muffled, and even the light was different. Upon opening my eyes, I'd know in an instant: SNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Of course, that would be followed with the wild hope of a snow day. Utter bliss at its best! We'd jump up to turn on the radio or TV in hopes of hearing there'd be no school.

So far this year, we've only had snow flurries, but it's a good start!
