Proof Positive

Snow on my neighbor's roof. The furnace running. Slippers on my feet.

Winter has visited us in advance, uninvited. I'm not counting this as the first snow.


That was then, this is now. First snow it is. Now I no longer feel as though the snow is either uninvited or unwanted. Now it has all the magic and excitement that the first real snow the season brings. I wrote about the magic of the first snow of the season last year. If you missed it, you can read about it here.
