Snow Happy

It SNOWED today! For most people, this is bad news. Snow means wearing coats, walking to school in wet shoes, and just plain being cold. I, on the other hand, adore snow. Snow was exactly what I needed today. I've been feeling depressed lately--turns out, snow is the perfect cure. So, in honor of this tender mercy, I give you:

25+1 reasons to like snow

  1. the way snow muffles all the sounds
  2. making snowmen (or snow dinosaurs)
  3. dying the snow colors with food coloring
  4. snow angels
  5. snowball fights
  6. sliding down hills
  7. skiing!!
  8. everything is white and clean (for a while at least)
  9. purity
  10. contemplative atmosphere
  11. fluffy!
  12. eating snow
  13. catching snowflakes on your tongue
  14. sweaters
  15. scarves and hats
  16. fireplaces
  17. hot chocolate (not just for breakfast anymore)
  18. cold people + warm blankets = cuddling!
  19. Christmas songs (or at least I feel less guilty about singing them)
  20. Christmas lights reflecting off the white sheets
  21. snow means my birthday is coming!
  22. icicles!
  23. the "thawing-out" feeling after coming in from the cold
  24. driving in newly fallen snow
  25. doing donuts in the parking lot
  26. watching the flakes melt in your hand

In other news, less than one week left until NaNoWriMo starts! Gah!

Liz, I ADORE snow. Walking home from campus in the snow on Wednesday night was positively beautiful. And those 26 things on your list? It doesn't get any better than that.
