The first snow

To say that the weather in Harmon County has been weird this year is a bit of an understatement. We celebrate, though, the moisture–anyway it comes–but especially this beautiful snow. It makes us think of what others have said about the snow.

“I love snow for the same reason I love Christmas: It brings people together while time stands still.” – Rachel Cohn

Park House at snowfall

“I am younger each year at the first snow. When I see it, suddenly, in the air, all little and white and moving; then I am in love again and very young and I believe everything.” – Anne Sexton

“Thank goodness for the first snow, it was a reminder–no matter how old you became and how much you’d seen, things could still be new if you were willing to believe they still mattered.”- Candace Bushnell

Snow was falling,
so much like stars
filling the dark trees
that one could easily imagine
its reason for being was nothing more
than prettiness – Mary Oliver
