It started falling about an hour ago, just like everyone said it would. Snow is one of my favorite reasons for never wanting to live south of the Mason-Dixon again. Somewhere in the back of your mind you know that people are going to be hurt tomorrow in accidents, that some people are outside tonight in the cold, that schools will be closed and money will be lost etc etc... and you look outside and for just a moment don't care at all about the rest of the world. Only that you're inside and warm and watching a beautiful forest get covered in a very peaceful looking layer of white.
Its so pretty outside... and there are deer looking into my window!
