It's snowing! It's snowing!

THIS is my favorite day of the year. The first day of SNOW! It is the day that I wake up to discover snow falling. On this day I feel exactly the same as I did as a kid. A sense of wonder takes over and a smile steals across my face. The fact that it seems to be sticking, however tentatively, makes it even better. Actually, that's part of the criteria for it being my FAVORITE day of the year--better than my birthday, better than Christmas, better than Halloween.

Yes, my friends, I am a winter soul at heart.

Happy day!

I used to feel that way, but now I dread snow... hate to drive in it!

Your happiness is kind of contagious even for someone who's not a winter person at all (and still lives in Sweden...)

We've had snow twice in the five years since I moved here. When I was teaching in London it snowed a whole inch in one day and the whole city ground to a halt. My favorite memory of that day was some of my students - most of whom were recent immigrants from hotter places - were desperate to go outside to play. So I let them because for most of them it was their first snow. All around us there was snow-fuelled chaos, but in that little bit of London, we played in complete joy!

so I get it!! happy snow to you!

It is the same every year for me, no snow yet, but I hope it is coming. Even with all the hassle it can bring I still and always love the snow :-).
