Beautiful Snow

Walking home from work late last night it was snowing in downtown Denver. It was late so there wasn't anyone around. It was peaceful and exquisitely beautiful.

Remember when you were little how excited you got with snow but how depressed you got when it rained? The tactile sense is powerful.

My 5 year old daughter was jumping up and down with excitement this morning as she was looking out the sliding glass door into the back yard. "It snowed!" she cried as she saw few inches we had outside. Even the dog was happy as can be as she jumped around in the snow.

This is why I love Colorado. All 4 seasons, all year long.

I agree. I still love to go out side when it snows and just look up at the sky (That is what I did as a kid too). Makes me slow down for a minute or two and realize just how amazing the world we live in is.

The looks of amazement on my little girls faces when they wake up in the morning helps too.
