Well, there's snow on the ground. It started snowing quite hard last night while we were watching the BYU game on TV and I was grading all my students' late work (end of term is next week). The thing is, I really am annoyed that it's not even Halloween and it will now probably be freezing cold until May. One of my number one arguments about this state is that it never really gives us a full four seasons.

On the other hand, as much as I gripe, moan, and complain about Utah, the snow here really is "the best snow on Earth." Especially while it is falling. It is simply gorgeous! The flakes are huge and fluffy, and they flutter to the ground in such a soft, pretty way.

Last night, after the initial groans when Chad announced that it was snowing on TV, and we opened our blinds to confirm that, yes, it was indeed snowing in our parking lot as well, we both decided that it was kind of hard to be mad at it. It was just so beautiful! Chad even said we should leave the blinds open so we could watch it for awhile. Watching it swirl in the light from the streetlamp was such an exquisite image. I felt like I was witnessing visual poetry.

So, there you go. I'm sure that in a couple weeks, if the snow lasts and keeps coming, I will have nothing but complaints. The snow seems less pretty when you have to start driving places in it. But for now, it's kind of fun to look at from afar.


  1. I can't believe it's snowing already! We have barely seen the beginning of the change of leaves out here! It is beautiful watching the snow fall, I just dread driving in it...

  2. All have have to say is WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU!!! Snow can never be pretty in October. It is fine if it snows in like December, but that is it. You have become an almost UTARD!!!! I don't know if we can be friends anymore. I HATE COLD WEATHER!!!!

  3. I'm not too fond of cold weather either but I agree with how beautiful falling snow can be. There is something almost peaceful about it. However I only like it if it falls and then melts within a day or two. I hate when it sticks around for forever. I'll be complaining soon too I'm sure.
