We are encased in a life sized snow globe. Our little area of southwest Ohio gets maybe one or two good snows per year, the rest are quick snow showers that melt in a day. We are in the second day of a city closing snow and ice storm and (sorry for all you snow haters out there) it is stunning. I tried to capture the feeling as I look out my windows but the camera doesn't pick up the fluffy white flakes floating down from the sky.The hush of the snow seems impossibly quiet. I wish there was a way to capture the the look of the snowfall.
The view from my front door is a magic landscape, white and desolate, but so inviting.
My photos simply do not do it justice. The whispering of the flakes as they fall. The fairy like glisten. The snow is falling so fast that it almost feels as if you are rising instead. Last night the ice that came down sounded like a tinkling rain of glass glitter hitting the roof.
It coated every branch with a shimmer of glass. Like magical sculpted crystal.
I wish I could capture the look and feeling for you. It is truly breathtaking. I hope you are staying warm and cozy where ever you are. I am thoroughly enjoying this beautiful morning.
I really do love the winter weather.
Have a wonderous Wednesday, P.
