We've had a fair amount of snow here lately and it's been so pretty at times. I love seeing the big flakes coming down and occasionally it starts coming down fast and thick and it's almost a white out.

But the best part for me is when it's dark, yet everything seems so light as the moon reflects off the snow. It seems so bright.

I also love it when you step outside and just listen. Everything is sooooooo quiet. I know absolutely NOTHING about science, but I do know that there is a scientific explanation for what you hear...or don't hear. Each sound seems so crisp, yet so quiet. I don't know if the sound is absorbed by the snow or if it bounces off the snow, but I just know that it's a type of "quiet" that can't be replicated in any other way, and I really love it.

Seeing freshly fallen snow, with no grass peaking through, no footsteps, and no tire, it's almost indescribable. I love seeing that.

Where we live now is just outside the city limits. Although there are some houses nearby, it's by no means crowded with houses on top of each other. Occasionally we have deer go through our yard to the fields around us. What I would really love to see is a deer bounding through our snowy backyard, with the moonlight reflecting off the snow. I'm sure it would be just beautiful.

Those of you who know me are probably thinking, "What's up with her and this post??" But that's's just something I've been thinking about lately as we've seen the snow fall, accumulate, blow around, melt, and then start all over again. can be so pretty sometimes.
