Of snow exists…
Some times it’s prettier this way.
Until it turns to slush.
There’s nothing pretty about slush.
But a world blanketed in quiet snow.
Always lovely when it’s snowing. The aftermath…not so much
Yes……especially if the after math is a DEEP freeze. Will take the slush over the freeze!
Yes, that is true!
That’s why we must enjoy the snow before it turns to slush and realize that soon it will snow again.
I’ll take the snow over the ice too!!!
Oft the contrarian, I would proffer that there *can* be beauty in slush, just as there is in mud and other forms of aftermath. It’s a perspective, yea/nay? 🙂
Yea. You are correct. There is likely beauty in about everything. I would prefer slush on a hike to road slush though, to be quite honest. 🙂
Heading back to snow, cold and slush too soon. I wish we could sell our return tickets and stay in the sunshine. Reality beckons.
Oh my…..not just ‘cold’ but REALLY cold Jim. Bummer. Hope it doesn’t shock the system too much!
New fallen snow is lovely, looking so soft and pure. Day old snow is used, ready to be dumped in the garbage along with the rest of the trash. Our snow always covers layers of ice–dangerous to walk on, making it a real 4 letter word.
Oh there’s a plenty of four letter words up here….usually before and after “snow”. Sometimes in the middle of it too!
Yay! Are snow is melting. I hope it doesn’t snow again. (Except the mountains need it and our desert needs the water!)
I hope your snow doesn’t appear and you get soft and gentle rains for your mountains and desert. 🙂
Clean, pristine, dazzling white. 🙂
I like it. Especially when the skies are grey and the light is fading. It feels so….cocoonish. 🙂
We’ve seen snow once since being in So. Calif. Two days ago it was in the mid 20s when I woke up. Today it hit all time highs of in the 80s. Crazy weather. That blanket of snow looks good, lol. 🙂
Oh a nice cool slushie for you guys. 🙂
I go from snow to shovel to sigh very, very quickly. Add drive and slide and skid. More sighs. Thanks, Colleen!
Uh. I bet you guys have more than we do right now. About five inches. And it stopped. But now it’s the deep freeze. Not so bad to shovel this time around. It was the light and fluffy stuff. I have tried like the dickens to reduce driving in it. But tomorrow, at it’s coldest, I’ll be out in it. 😦 Sighing and probably cussing.
I love fresh blanketed snow…when I do not have to work the next day (or even that day). I am leery of snow if I have to drive, but still live its beauty. A forced rest, an introspection. I wondered how you were up there. The news said it was hit fairly hard. Stay safe ( and yeah slush is not as pretty…though my brother used to like to make snowballs with slush turned-ice centers…when he was young he played for keeps). Hope it melts quickly when it does meantime may it bring more words to pen. 🙂
Thank you Niaaeryn. 🙂 We are all well here. I don’t mind some insightly slush. It is better than ice. And yes it’s better to look at than drive in! Here’s to the melting and more words!!!!!!!
Here, here 🙂
I haven’t seen snow (real snow) since leaving Colorado.
Lucky in some regards. I think about moving to an always warmer climate and I do think in reality I would miss the season changes….. I think. Maybe not…..
Watching from a nice warm place of course ☺️
🙂 I’m glad you are! Someone has to do it! 😉
I like the way you wrote this, Colleen. Hush, allow the silence and beauty of the blanket wrap around you… Snow does keep our steps quieter, doesn’t it?
It does Robin. On a quiet evening….I like that best. 🙂
