My daughter and I went for a walk last night at 8pm just after some fresh snow. We live in an area of Alaska where significant melt doesn’t usually start to show until about April, when the Canadian Geese and swans start to return. You can ‘smell’ the ice though, which is a sign of the Earth waking up.
I wish you could see the sparkle from the snow. It was like tiny diamonds as we walked… like glitter in a snow globe. And the snow was fluffy, and everything is so quiet this time of year. You almost have to whisper!
Ooohhh… those are still beautiful pictures of the snow! I remember seeing it like that in Northern New Hampshire too! & the smell of fresh snow & the ice!
We don’t have any snow here, we had a warmer than normal January & a lot of rain starting around Christmas each week… so it howling winds & subzero, but you can hear the moisture thats frozen in the trees crack as they bend with the wind.
Gorgeous pictures & you can see the glimmer of the diamonesque snow
We’ve have had a few snows that remind me of that this year, but lately it’s either too cold to really snow or rain. And it’s so disappointing because I love being out during or after a fresh snow! The rainy days that turn everything icky and icy are not a favorite of mine.
Also, I LOVE the quiet that snow brings! It’s amazing to be out in it!
I agree 100%! I do love rain, but in the summertime with thunderstorms and the hot sidewalk smell.
And thank you @jan_TheGreenWitch , Alaska has some pretty significant weather and seasons. It’s like living in a whole different world out of a different time. I love it. I’ll be sure to show how light it is here during summer solstice! It’s wild.
It’s like a fairy tale! Oh! I love snow… I rarely get it… but I love it! Once, when I was about 12, we were living in Ohio and it snowed and my mom allowed me to go outside to sled by myself at night. I remember walking while it was snowing and it was so quiet and so sparkly and magical. It’s a memory I will always treasure! Thank you for sharing!
@AileyGrey I totally agree! It’s so magical. I’ve always loved snow too. I’m so glad you have that memory.
@Amaris_Bane aside from living here very briefly in my early years, I was raised in the middle of Arizona, if you can believe it! Waaaay too hot for me though. I joke that I’m a polar bear. I’d wear shorts and sandals when my friends thought it was cold lol!
