|taken this morning at 5am|
always the first snow draws a reaction from us all. to those few lucky ones who love the snow and cold winter season, who plan on taking full advantage of the slopes or who embark on snowmobile adventures, i envy you. i can only look forward to a few attempts at capturing that perfect stillness that happens after a night of peaceful falling snow. i can indeed admire the beauty of winter in those rare moments. and perhaps some, in homemade soups and stews or hot chocolate and wassail. but for the vast majority,.. i add my feelings of trepidation to those that will wake up this morning and give a heavy sigh at the sight of the beginning of another long winter. my first thoughts are always on how little i enjoy having cold wet feet for the duration. having to wear flip flops all year is not my favorite. i suppose i can feel lucky im not going to be out in it much this year.
good luck to you all. the first snow is always bad news i think. everyone seems to lose their minds and forget how to drive in utah. but in all that misery i hope you also find one of those rare moments to admire the perfect stillness and beauty of the season.
