Yes, That’s Snow

We received quite a dusting today, its too warm for it to stick on the ground, but the roof tops are a little dusted and there is quite a lot of flakes flaotting around in the wind.  I have shot some video and stills of the snow.  For the most part it is not too crazy, it only snows here about every 10 years, no real accidents I have seen or people going outside to stare at the sky.  We noticed it at 10 this morning and it was comming down from light to heavy until about 3:45, now there are just a few flakes in the air.  Having lived in Milwaukee for 8 years, and growing up in Detroit until I was 10, snow is not a big deal to me (it even snowed a couple of times in Alabama while I was there).  Coco has seen snow before, but she has not lived in a place where it has snowed.  We enjoyed watching it fall, reminding me of a alternative movie I saw in college simply titled Snow Fall in a Field, which was a 30 mm grainy film of 1 hour of snow falling, no sound and in black and white, just watching snow fall and a couple of deer checking it out.  No deer in Shanghai, but watching the snow fall was fun and too bad it won’t last for long.  I’ll post the pics I took along with some shots from around the creek next to where we lived, its odd to see how much can change in the span of 20 days.

    Hello  Bravo,
    Every year I can\’t wait for the First snow, to see the giant flakes drifiting slowly down, and how quite the mountian becomes.  I Enjoy the silence and the beauty. This year it has been snow, snow, and snow, at least the roads are clear. By the time Febuary rolls around I am getting cabin fever.  My husband stays in music studio listening and playing music for longer hours it seems. It does help break up the the longer eveings,  I look forward to March and longer daylight hours and Sunshine.
