It’s finally snowing.

All year long, I wait for this magical moment when I will be sitting in the study at night, blogging and looking at the snowflakes dancing in the street-light. I’m a Northern cold- and snow-loving person who is stuck in this tropical climate of Southern Illinois.

And then every day people show extreme insensitivity by saying to me, “Wonderful weather! It is so sunny and warm!”

Yes, 65F in February makes total sense. It’s like they are rubbing it in or something. I have these beautiful red boots that I bought to wear in winter. And I haven’t even taken them out of the closet yet. It’s February 8th! And I’m walking around in a short-sleeved dress and the same shoes I wore in August.

But it’s finally snowing and I’m planning to stay up all night to avoid losing even a second of it. Now I will go outside and walk in the snow. In the middle of the night. Listening to the sounds it makes as it falls and feeling it cover my hair, my face, my hands.

I know that talking about weather is boring but I’m suffering here and I needed to share. Feel free not to comment.

P.S. Have you ever walked barefoot in the snow? It’s exhilarating, people. Orgasmic. And no, it doesn’t make you sick. It makes you healthy. This is an old remedy for sickly people.

  1. OOHHHHHHH winter cold has taken it a lot of time to come here this year too, but you know, somehow we’ve got a Siberian Cold Wave (because, it seems, cold does not belong here anymore, and if it’s present, then it’s a Siberian Cold Wave) but the thing is that : TODAY IS THE 7TH CONSECUTIVE DAY OF SNOW so you know I’m so happy. I totally understand you!!


  2. My chilblains are itching just thinking about walking barefoot in the snow. 😀 I’m glad you get some enjoyment from it though, and even a sun-worshipper like myself can admire how beautiful a wintry landscape is.


  3. I thought we had snow once down where I live, just for a minute. Turned out a refinery exploded.

    God, I love snow. And the mountains. I have family in the mountains and I miss them about equally. I can’t ski worth a fuck but it sure is pretty.


  4. I like snow days. Unfortunately, it never really sticks where I go to school. About ten minutes away there’ll be snow days left and right. Not here. Here it’s just really cold and really windy. When it’s warm in the day it snows at night.
