With remnants of yesterdays first snow still on the ground I am reminded of a time when this sight had a much more significant impact in my life. It seems like ages ago, but there was a time when the first snow would bring feelings and emotions that can only be understood by fellow resort goers. The first snow always marked the beginning of a new snowboard season and incredible outdoor adventures. Each new flake brought a magical essence capable of erasing sadness and loneliness. Each new flake was able to erase the memories of last years winter, no matter how good or bad it was, and replace it with an excited expectation that would convince the most skeptical realist that this was going to be the best year ever! Now, years later and not a ski resort in sight, the first snow always brings a flood of memories of years gone by. It still brings an excited expectation. It still convinces me that this winter is going to be the best winter ever!
How does the first snow make you feel, Happy, sad, excited, Irritated?
