In Missouri, we are still enjoying fall and all it's color! But I have to say, Sondra's blog made me stop and think about how quickly our first snow may arrive. I am not a fan of the cold weather, but I do love watching the snowfall. I love catching up with clients I know will be stuck at home, writing thank you notes, and cleaning out closets. Tour days are not as much fun as they are in sunny weather! Can't wait for Christmas and Thanksgiving too, with the joy of family and friend get togethers too! Enjoy the moment, no matter what the moment is!!
Yesterday, an October snow storm swept through the Colorado Springs area. Fortunately, I did not have to deal with any crises since my water pipes had been wrapped and the tender plants were in. After having lived in College Station, Texas, where it rarely snows, I thought the snow was pretty exciting.
Granted, I was disappointed that I had to work. I would rather have been able to enjoy the snowy day at home with a cup of hot chocolate and a toasty fire. I still managed to take a few photos.
The snow and the cold weather makes me look forward to catching up on some of the indoor chores that I've put off.
It makes me look forward to the rapidly approaching holidays. It makes me look forward to planning for next year. The first snow makes me realize that winter has arrived.
What does the first snow mean to you?
This "Rearing Horse" sculpture, by Don Green, is one of my favorite sculptures that I have found in the Colorado Springs area. It is located between Centennial Hall and the Pikes Peak Fine Arts Center in downtown Colorado Springs.
