Today it began…

The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event.  You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then were is it to be found?
–J. B. Priestly

In the wintertime, in the snow country, citrus fruit was so rare, and if you got one, it was better than ambrosia.
James Earl Jones

We build statues out of snow, and weep to see them melt.
Walter Scott

An aged Christian, with the snow of time upon his head, may remind us that those points of earth are whitest which are nearest to heaven.
Edwin Hubble Chapin

The snow itself is lonely or, if you prefer, self-sufficient.  There is no other time when the whole world seems composed of one thing and one thing only.
Joseph Wood Krutch

And so we remained till the red of the dawn began to fall through the snow gloom.  I was desolate and afraid, and full of woe and terror.  But when that beautiful sun began to climb the horizon life was to me again.
–Bram Stoker

You are ice and fire, the touch of you burns my hands like snow.
–Amy Lowell

I love Christmas.  I really do love Christmas. I love being with my family and I love snow.  I love the music and the lights and all of it.
Christina Applegate

  1. Very nice – I especially like the photo of peppers in the snow! There’s something you don’t see every day. And I like the Walter Scott quote, too. I’m impressed that you found such a large assortment of “snow” quotes for this post.

    • Sharon, when I do quotes, I google “quotes about snow” or whatever the topic is, and they pop right up. Some are very tangential, but usually there are quite a few that will work. Often I have to make hard choices about which to choose. Glad you liked the pictures. Not much snow, but a harbinger!

    Makes me realize fall is moving into winter-nice…beebee

    • That it is. Going to take the garbage out tonight, I hit the cold, crisp air of incipient winter. That little bit of snow is going, but I know it’s out there. I really don’t mind snow most of the time and prefer it to rain in many ways.

    Brrr! I love the cabbage plans (Kale)? Really pretty, I want some! Fun pictures!

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
