Today was our first snow of the winter - big, fat flakes that have been falling for at least the last 3 hours. I checked first thing when I woke up, and when I saw them I bundled up and headed out to wander and enjoy it a bit. I had a grin on my face that matched the one I saw on a 5 or 6 year old little girl that was walking with her father, scooping snow from the side of the sidewalk and saying "Look Dad! SNOW!" I can't help it - the first snow is one of my favorite things, it's so magical. Everything is a bit more quiet and peaceful, and doesn't the world just look so beautiful when it's covered in a fresh blanket of snow? I took a lot of photos, and you can check out the rest of them on my Flickr.
