“The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?” ~J. B. Priestley
While I did not wake up to the snow it was just as magical. My first snowfall in New York was fantastic.
I was like a kid, screaming “IT’S SNOWING!” This is my first snowfall in New York. But my excitement didn’t seem to upset anyone on the street. They seemed to really enjoy the snow as well. There were a lot more people riding bikes and walking than I thought there would be.
I really wanted to make a snow angel but by the time I got ready my landlady and neighbors were already shoveling the snow.
They were working hard. One even pulled out this lawn mower looking thing that shoots the snow off to the side. It was kind of cool.
Considering it was still snowing and there is more to come overnight I couldn’t understand why they were shoveling. I think it would be more slippery. But I guess you have to stay ahead of the snow to make it easier in the morning. At least that is my theory. Feel free to correct me or give a new theory.
I went outside to take pictures and my shoes actually crunched when I stepped onto the snow.
The wind whipped the snow against my face. I could see and feel the snowflakes on my lashes.
The snow covered the screen on my camera to the point I couldn’t even see the pictures I was taking; hence the one that looks like asteroids are zipping across the sky.
Sadly, meteorologists are saying the weekend will be in the 60’s. While this saddens me I am sure this won’t be the last snowfall of the year.
I can’t wait for more snow. I have to enjoy it as much as I can now because I know at some point the snow will just annoy me. But right now I am going to be that annoying person who gets excited every time she sees snow.
