SNOW DAY!

I woke up to a beautiful blanket of snow on the ground.  I love the winter, especially when it snows because its the one time of the year that my yard looks as beautiful as everyone else's.  Did you ever listen to the sound of snow falling?  I know it sounds nuts, but there is a sound... its a soft, feathery, crystally sound... If magic had a sound it would sound like snow falling.  I've spent many a moment outside with my eyes closed, feeling the warm touch of the snowflakes on my upturned face just before they melt.. and listened to such a beautiful peaceful sound that echos across the land.  Some of my favorite sounds include the sound of falling snowflakes, the sound of the ocean, the wind through the trees, my childrens' laughter... and the sound of the AOL dude who says "You've Got Mail"

SNOW....it is almost here in Missouri. Oh, it is so cold...well, for me anyway. Around 29 degrees! I love snow~when it's falling, so peacful, angelic, heavenly. I LOVE Christmas snow. Did you ever just close your eyes and stick out your tongue and let the snow fall on it? Each one is unique....
Snow DOES have a sound Dorn, I hear it when it's falling.
Enjoy your snow...   :)

I love all those sounds too.  I haven't seen snow in about 7 years, I actually mss it.  Hoping that will change this coming year.

I love snow!  There's such a simple beauty to it and yes, there is a sound to falling snow.  Your description was perfect!

...the other great thing about snow in the morning is that it hides the dirt mounds in the backyard where you buried the body the night before. Nature is a beautiful thing.
