Big fluffy flakes have been flying and floating all day past the window. We can still see the Staubbach tumbling down, though with less water in winter of course. But snow....Big ones, small ones, always a curious thing.
Snow itself is not actually white and has many designs but always seems magical. Even when trudging through a snow storm holding onto a rope can have it's hidden memorable moments of solitude and magic.
Snow , a book written by PD Eastman and illustrated by Roy McKie in 1962 that I fondly remember from my childhood. As book number 27 in the Beginner Book series, I could recall it all, along with scenes such as the snow fort, the dog sliding down the snow on his tail, the melting snow man and most importantly, the attempt by the children to save some snow in their refrigerator.
“Snow! Snow! Snow! Come out in the snow. Snow! Snow!
Just look at the snow! Come out! Come out! Come out in the snow.
I want to know If you like snow. Do you like it? Yes or no? Oh yes! Oh Yes!
I do like snow.
Do you like it In your face?
Yes! I like it any place.
What is snow?
We do not know. But snow is lots of fun We know.
What makes it snow? We do not know.
But snow is fun To dig and throw.”
