The entire Washington, D.C. metro area is completely blanketed in snow, with more on the way and an expected accumulation of up to 3 feet. I am pretty amazed at this development, because when my husband & I left the Midwest several years ago, the one thing we lamented was a future bereft of snowy white winter wonderlands. I have come to love the balmy Mid-Atlantic climate, where Spring comes early with a spectacular parade of flowering trees (Cherry Blossoms, Eastern Redbuds, Dogwoods), and where summers often extend late into the reaches of November, but I still appreciate a good winter snowfall at least occasionally. There is something magical and romantic about snow, like the way it glows under the moonlight, brightening up the dark days of winter, or the effect it has of putting a smile on children's faces. Despite the general inconvenience, I welcome a few good days of having my world painted in snowflakes.
