Our First Snow

See the source image

I realize I don’t have a lot of company in this, unless there are more 10-year-olds reading this blog than I would ever dare hope. But today, for the first time this season, it’s snowing–and that makes me happy! In fact, as soon as I finish this post, I’m going to go outside and smoke a cigar while I stand in the snow and watch it coming down.

Well, of course I feel differently when I have to shovel it! But that comes later. I’m loving the “now” part. I can’t help it. Maybe it goes back to my childhood: if it snowed enough, no school! Few things in life are better than no school. Besides, it’s pretty! A lot of God’s stuff is pretty, and I like it.
