It began yesterday.


Flakes so tiny,

You might miss them in a glance.

The grass stood straighter.

Showing the tops of each blade.


the ground was white.

Children squealed with delight.

Shovels escaped from the garage.

Dogs sprinted through the drifts.

The night became lighter,


The Christmas lights


reflected on the new white surface.

The air was sharp.

The tops of ears frozen.

Wet clothes stripped onto the floor.

Hot chocolate

warming from the inside out.

Winter has arrived.

    Sigh. I go through this snow envy every year. It always feels like everyone gets snow before we do…if we ever do. COVET!

    Hooray for snow! I hope it’s not too much…and I like that your blog is snowing! And does anything go better together than snow and hot chocolate?
