Ode To Snow

I love snow.  I love that it covers the filthy world with a blanket of white, taking what was once corrupt and making it appear pure and clean.  It provides insulation, quieting all the noise and giving the world a peaceful quiet.  Even road noise is reduced to a gentle muffled crunching of snow.  As long as drivers don't run into anything, at which point there is a loud crunching of metal.  When it snows, the world slows down, the stresses of daily life disappear, kids are outside playing, and adults are smiling and relaxed.  For a brief couple of days, the world is a better place.  People are friendlier and everything is more beautiful.  We are afforded a glimpse of how the world should be.  Yes, snow is one of life's little miracles.  Not to mention that it's pretty sweet to nail some unsuspecting fool in the side of the head with a tightly packed snowball.
