Let it Snow Let it Snow Let it Snow....

As I opened my eyes the pale grey light of morning illuminate the room. After rummaging around in semi-darkness I eventually managed to haul my aching sleepy body over to the bathroom. Every breath appeared like mist before me and my hands shook with the cold. This was going to be a cold January.

After making my ablutions and somehow changing into clean clothes I made my way down to the street. The frosty wind hit me the moment I opened the heavy door and dim twilight greeted me. The sun would not show her face for some time yet and even then it is nothing more then a cruel rouse.

After crawling a few steps my vision cleared, the hazy breath had kept me from noticing it. I stopped mid step and looked around, the world had been blanket in beautiful snow.

I could hardly believe it, there had been nothing, not even frost in over a year but here it was shimmering under street light.

Hyde Park resembled a country estate or an Adam Ansel photo of winter perfection. Even though my fingers and toes felt like lead weights I didn't mind. The world was enchanting once more.

(p.s Thank you all for being so nice, its appreciated)

    We had some more snow this morning, I really need about 3 good weeks to get things back in order, but I like snow too much to complain. Have a great day.

  4. I love realizing there is snow all over. I haven't really had that pleaure this year though. There was a good snow one morning but nothing like the winter wonderlands of my youth.

  5. I can imagin, half awake, expecting nothing but the same tristesse as every morning, and then suddenly realizing: It's snow. Hyde Park coverd with a white, soft blanket. Must have been a wonderful view; yes indeed it was, only look at the great picture.

    Thanks for sharing this white moment.

  6. The picture is beautiful. How is it that something that looks so beautiful can be so ugly to be out in. I hate the cold weather, and so does my bones, but I do love the beauty of freshly fallen snow on the landscape.

  9. Wow...I love this. I love how bittersweet the entire season of winter can appear. But the beauty is really something that cannot ever be done justice.

  14. Beautifully written post!

    I love when I awaken to a blanket of snow ... almost feels like someone sprinkled powdered sugar on top of everything. Yum.

  16. We had a bit of snow up here in Yorkshire, but it didn't stick and had gone completely by the morning. It's quite a turn around from years gone by, when the north would get most of the snow and the south would only get a bit. This global warming...

  17. Sounds like a magical experience all right... We had a few flakes last weekend, which I took as much satisfaction as I could from. A snowless winter is like having a year with one less season. Sorry to hear about the new internet restrictions at work!

  19. We received our first blanket on the 22nd. The kids were overjoyed and despite my extreme dislike of the cold, I have to admit to a quickened heartbeat at the sight of the swirling snow in my headlights.
