As far back as I can remember, this has been the snowiest winter yet since I moved to Minnesota. For the past week it has been snowing everyday. There is nothing that I love more than to wake up in the morning and see the snow fall from the sky. Fresh snow keeps the world white and beautiful. It is actually a brighter day than a warm summer sunny day in July. The beauty of a snowflake is hard to capture in words and is neverending. I love snow!
Unfortunately, we have not had to time to play in it. I have tickets to Welch Village and I am hoping we use them before spring melts us away. Growing up in the UP of Michigan taught me many ways to enjoy the winter season. Then I grew up and forgot to make time to enjoy the snow once again.
We will never see the snow I lived in when I was in Michigan. Lake Superior brings on it's own weather up there and it is hard to forecast what the lake will do from day to day. But I have never seen anything more beautiful than the country by Lake Superior. Some days I miss the UP and her magical surprises she brings upon the people living there. Then there are times I am glad I got to get out and enjoy some of the other wonders of the United States.
For now, I am going to pray for a ski day!
