I grew up in Michigan with winters that often mounded street corners with snow, and the sound of snow plows in the morning meant possibly that school was closed. I remember so clearly how warm snow is when you build a little snow hovel and lay down in it in your snow suit. I love snow days. I wish our current state got more of them, but when they do come we live it up.
Sledding at a nearby playground turned ski slope!
I only had my iphone with me the evening I went to work and saw this. I am trying to capture the steel grey of the frozen drainage pond. The color was very quiet, like the rest of the air around me. I could hear a faint cracking sound as things froze in the sudden cold snap.
and when I left work, the snow was coming down hard. I drove under 20mph the entire way home.
and I still love snow days.
