The Magic of Winter

January 16, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Earlier this week we had a really wet snow in Colorado Springs. Ever since I was a little girl, it has always been my dream to live in the snow. It has snowed several times since moving here, but this snow was different. It was special. I definitely see why it is often called "wet cement" snow - it sticks to everything! Even ordinary objects are transformed into magical scenes of frosted white. I went to Palmer Park and Garden of the gods and a thick mist came in, adding to the beauty and the wonder. Next time you are in an area with wet snow, I encourage you to go out and enjoy it. It may not last longer than 1-2 days, and it is definitely worth savoring :)
