“Oh My God, wow it is snowing”, my daughter screamed as soon as she got up this morning.
“Yes. It is so beautiful”, my wife joined her at the window looking outside.
She was right.
White flurries, like small pieces of cotton, look beautiful. White accumulation on trees, bushes, sidewalks, grass, roofs and roads change the surroundings. Landscape appeared fresh, pure and unpolluted. Enjoying this stunning scenery is exciting and yet has a soothing effect.
In this part of North Carolina a snow day is a mini celebration as it is an infrequent event. A slight trace of snow and sometimes even some flurries can cause school closures. Keeping the spirit, the schools were closed today.
Usha, the most humble blogger I know, posted pictures of an earlier snow day here. Usha mainly writes recipes for delicious dishes but sometimes she treats us with wonderful pictures on her posts. Besides culinary, her photography skills are par excellence. Usha introduced me to the blogging. She is my first reader and is a constant source of encouragement.
