First snow November 19 2017

“Snow!” I gleefully exclaim each year on the first day I wake to find snow on the ground, and have done so since I was a child. 

When they heard me, my kids would squeal and jump out of bed, equally excited to get out into the first snow day of the season.

As they grew older, they began to smile and stretch and say, “Nice.” Then it became, “OK Mum. We heard you.” Then, “Arghh” and pull the blankets over their heads.

As adults they became sweetly tolerant of their mother, the equivalent of patting a cute puppy on the head.

But I persist. I love the first snow. I love frost on the windows. I love the crunch under my feet. I love it all — until the middle of January.  

Happy First Snow Day!
