to be continued

I suppose there are really 600 names for snow used by the beloved Eskimos.
Pondering this early today as I watched the blessed arrival of winter in my yard,
I wondered why, or why not ? While it may be possible to make up words for white fluffy stuff that is really a pain, it also occurs to me that we make have misunderstood some of these translations

I always see the arrival of snow as "impending fun" :-)

Dunno why, it could be the novelty involved because we don't see snow that much over here. Although if you believe Metcheck (less for me now cos they didn't predict our rain) snow may be coming here very soon ...

I think snow is great when you don't have to go anywhere, n get to play in it instead of cleaning it!
None here yet- another 50F day here!
