We had a snowstorm yesterday and another expected tomorrow. This morning when I woke up everything was quiet and covered in that footprint free, perfect snow. This quote from J.B. Priestley describes it quite well for me... "The first fall of snow...is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of world and wake up in another quite different." The snow may cause disrupted travel plans, traffic hassles, school delays, or cancellations of events, but snow is also a beautiful event that not everyone in the world gets to experience. Even though I may not always like it and by February can be down right tired of it, I do appreciate the fact that I live in Iowa and get to experience it. Snow is a magical gift and today I am enjoying it.
