In Others’ Words: Snow


“I used to stare up at the sky trying to see where the snowflakes were born. I could do it for hours. Well, minutes. But it was always the waiting that was the most fun.” ~Author unknown, from a package of Starbucks coffee, 2010

The longer I’ve lived in Colorado, the more I’ve come to love snow.

I love what snow does to the world — dressing it up in white while quieting everything down.

Snow falling is a soft “Hush” to the world.

In Your Words: Are you a snow person or not? Any favorite snow memories or fun, must-do snow activities? I’m not a skier or snow boarder, although my son, daughter-in-love and son-in-love all enjoy snowboarding. I’m more a “Look it’s snowing, let’s have hot chocolate” kind of gal.

    I like snow, but in the proper season. Not sure I’d love it if it fell out of the sky right now, LOL. And I’m with you, Beth…Let’s have a hot chocolate together. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I know it’s heading our way, too, & is a great equalizer–but for now I’d rather see more flurries of falling autumn leaves.

      Ya know, I like the autumn leaves on the trees … I love all that color: golds, reds, oranges!

    Wish I were more of one. I like the early snows, but I crave sun by mid-Jan.

    Like Sarah, I like snow in its season–n0t in June, like we sometimes get. ๐Ÿ™‚ I loved watching the snow we had the other day. If I’m dressed for it, I like having snow ball fights with my kids, building snow men. I enjoy skiing, but it’s been years, and I’m not sure my knees would like me much if I tried it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    So, may I join you and Sarah for some hot cocoa and bring a touch of mint to add t our drinks?

    I always love the first snow of the year. Usually by March I’m ready to say goodbye, but oh, those first few snows of the year make me so happy… ๐Ÿ™‚

      The nice thing about Colorado: The snow usually melts within 24 hours (at least in the Springs where I live!)

    I’m in your corner, Beth. Hot chocolate and marshmallows and sit and watch the flakes come down. And here in Mississippi, snow means everything stops…it’s kind of like a vacation day. lol

      One of my favorite gifts from my daughter: A sign that says “I love snow days.” I keep it up all year-round.

    I like the way snow makes everything look fresh and beautiful. As a kid, I appreciated snow days in Georgia. As an adult, I’m not a huge fan, because I always worked in an industry that required I report to work. Of course, if I wrecked my car, I was totally responsible. In Colorado, I’ve appreciated how the sun can melt most of it and return the transportation system back to normal. A couple of times, I’ve wondered the logic of road clearing efforts as Hubby left for work. He always emails to say he made it.

      I like snow most when I don’t have to drive in it.
      And if the roads are icy? I don’t drive. Not at all. Nope. Nada. Not going anywhere.

    I like looking at snow when it’s freshly fallen and I’m inside a warm house with the power on. When my hubby gets me up the Sierras to go out in the back country on my snowshoes, I can enjoy it as well. But I do not like driving in it.
