Random thoughts

It's fun walking in the snow. As in while it's snowing. Better than walking in the rain, in that you can brush it off, unlike rain water.
There's lots of kinds of snow. Lightly fallen snow, stuff that lays in an almost translucent layer, easily brushed away. Trouble is, it more often than not disappears in a tiny puddle of water before long. Then there's the hard crinkly snow. Beware of playing with this kind 'cos it's perfectly capable of bruising you! Then there's the hard packed snow. Mostly after it's been snowing for a while. And loads of people have walked over it. I don't like this kind of snow. Wouldn't recommend falling down on this stuff, which can easily happen, since this is also the most slippery. The kind I like the least is the slushy, muddy stuff that's left lying on the road by the indifferent cars. It isn't even white!
I really like the freshly fallen fluffy snow. It's soft. When you walk through it, it feels like a luxurious carpet. And you can make perfect snowballs with it!! But nothing beats flakes of snow softly floating down from the sky. It settles ever so lightly on your outstretched palm. It isn't even too cold. I can see it float down my window now. I think the word I'm looking for, is ethereal.

Its supposed to snow here again today and I'm hoping it won't. Have to go out to get some work done, and all that will be stuck if it snows.

The Eskimos have "hundreds" of words for snow. But then Wikipedia tells me that it is a myth that has to do with the way they make sentences.
Btw, thanks for stopping by my blog.
