A few weeks ago we got our first taste of snow. I was pretty pumped about this because i lovelovelovelovelove snow; then a terrible dry spell, which involved rain, made everything muddy brown and wet. But now (stating the obvious) everything is accented in white 🙂 Lets get the snow days rollin!
Almost everybody i’ve talked to is happy about this wonderful fluff, yet there are some who absolutely despise snow. They hate the cold and the slush and the cold. They want it to constantly be 30 celsius which i think would be terrible. This is Canada, we need variances in weather to maintain our culture of being some of the hardiest folk alive, next to the people in Iceland. Besides the cold and the slush, there really isn’t that much to hate about it, so here are some of the reasons why i love it:
Snow is the wrapping paper around an ugly sweater. It makes all the muddy brown, patchy grassed lawns covered in dead leaves and stick fragments look like smooth, puffy, sparkling carpets of possibility in the way a nicely wrapped present makes you excited over what’s inside.
Speaking of possibilities there are about 20 different outdoor activities to do in the winter
you can make stuff out of it
school stops because of it… as well as most traffic
you can live in it
you can eat it.
