Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

Tonight we’re expecting a “Colorado Low” to bring in our first big snow storm of this winter. Environment Canada is predicting 15 centimeters of the white stuff in the Toronto area. That’s just a little bit more than ankle deep. Usually I’m not a big fan of snow, but the first really big snow fall of the year always brings out the kid in me. Last weekend we put out our Christmas lights, and this weekend we’re going to drag home a tree. So a blanket of fluffy white stuff will just add to the cheer. The other thing about a thick layer of snow is it really makes everything look pretty. What were once dead, naked tree branches suddenly become graceful sculptures and each of the bay-n-gable style houses in our little section of the street transforms into a real-life John Kasyn painting.
