I want snow (part 2)

Good evening to all of the persona paper community. I wanted to write a post again because as my title says: I still want snow. We had a small snowfall of about one inch last week, but of course by now it is all melted away. I miss the white stuff. I, at this time do not miss the cold because it is cold enough right now to bundle up with a good coat, scarf, hat and mitts. But I miss the colour white covering the sidewalks, the rooftops, the trees and us of course. I enjoy winter and not because I am a sport enthusiastic. I do not skate or ski. But I enjoy walking especially when snow is falling in the early evening as it reflects all over the place with the streetlights. Most of all, I enjoy the cold. It seems to make the air so much fresher, even though it is not and the pollution is still there. But at least, just the fact that the air is cold makes it feel much fresher. I really think I should have been born an Inuit, or a Norwegian or even a Siberian. But I am just a French Canadian who wants winter to really kick in and start with a nice full snowfall. Well, I think I have said my peace and I have vented out my frustration enough. Good night to every body.

Snow is beautiful and wonderful to look at it, but I just can't handle it and the cold weather at my age. That's why I moved from Wisconsin to Thailand.

I'm with Paulie. I'm wondering how old you are -- still young or getting into later middle age or above. I have never lived where it snowed, but I was having to walk in a blizzard in Illinois on a trip when I was pretty newly married. I came home very sick.

When I first graduated high school I traveled 800 miles north to New Hampshire to go to college. One of my favorite memories of that one glorious semester is walking with my date down the main street of that little college town in the evening, when the streetlights were on and all the store fronts lit up, and there was a gentle snow falling. We were holding gloved hands and smiling and we were so happy just being together at that moment. It is a pity that all these years later, I can still see her beautiful face, reddened by the chill, her dark brown hair dusted with snow, but I can't recall her name.

While I too have wished for snow,but I have come to the conclusion looking at photos of snow is better.

I read the first part of this post, I might frozen to death when I live there. I live in a tropical country here in Asia and I am not really immune with a very cold weather with lots of snow... but it is cool to see a white season there.
