Eloquent Lizzie captures one of the wonders of snow

We live in part of the country that got hit with the big snow yesterday. I knew going to bed Thursday night, that there would be no school on Friday and was looking forward to sleeping in. Lizzie, as usual, had other plans.

She went to sleep with a green lawn outside her home and woke early the next morning to a winter wonderland. A lot of snow had dumped and was set to keep piling up for several more hours -- it truly brought that magical feel to the air.

Old snow can kiss my ass, but the fresh stuff -- what is it? It's so calming, and sprinkled with pixie dust.

As Lizzie marveled at the sight of all that snow, she couldn't quite put together why it meant there would be no school -- she asked, "Are we going to have a snow storm?" I said, "We are having a snow storm right now."
She lost her breath for a moment and her eyes flashed a you gotta be kidding me, that's so cool -- kind of flash, then she took a breath and said in the perfect tone of awe, "I never knew a storm could be so gentle."

Aww...that is so awesome! I love little kid-isms on how the world works. A nice change of perspective (especially here in Massachusetts, where we're praying that when our first storm of this year comes, it too will be gentle!)

Yay Lizzie!

Very nice change of perspective ... especially from my expletive-filled attempt to unearth my car on Friday morning!
