100 Words: When I See Snow



Winter is not winter without a little cold. On campus, I would trek with a light jacket, desperate for a chill. Christmas did not feel as if it was near.

I am used to freezing temperatures and festive lights filling up my town; it seemed rather dull and uneasily warm for December.

If I am thankful for anything this season, it is the chance to come home and be with family, to feel the chill in the air, to see the lights and occasionally get a nice glimpse of snow. It may not be much, but it is my Wonderland.

  4. Why thank you! I hope you have a wonderful holiday yourself! It's exactly 32 right now and it's supposed to drop down to 22... We'll see what that means for the snowfall. :)

  5. I know exactly what you mean Jen! (Jenn? Jenny? Jeniferous? too far, too far) I was just in Peru up until a couple days ago and the flowers came out as the flowers did. Christmas without cold is not right. Not right.

    I likes your blog, my dear! I'll come back and visit you (you have no say). And consider this your invite to come visit me as well! New blog friends always welcome, especially other college students.

  9. I felt the same way this winter too- my campus is super cold in the winter, and up until this past week it still felt like fall. But this week, the snow blew in and its been snowing all day every day. It's so beautiful. Campus' always look prettier in the snow. Especially if it's a campus with really old stone buildings like mine has.

  10. I'm gonna be really tacky and leave a follow up comment to my earlier comment (cause who needs self-respect anyway?)

    I actually meant to say flowers came out as the Christmas decorations did...fail.

  11. Dani: Hahaha, oddly enough I didn't notice that typo!

    Trish: Yeah we have like spanish-like architecture but it's still nice. I'm sure it'd be mighty pretty in snow.
    They had decorations all in our Student Union, which was really nice to see when you spend half your life in there during finals getting coffee and finding a nice peaceful table to study at or just think.

  12. Aw, sweet post :) I don't think you'd like winter here very much then...hee hee.

    (Glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for visiting :)

  13. Haha yeah I'm a fan of cold winters and white ones if at all possible. :P I don't like much less than that... Makes me kinda bummed.

    Probably because I HATE summer so I really look forward to the cold seasons.

  14. Hey! You commented on my blog about my fisheye pictures.
    I actually don't have a fisheye lens.
    I got a Cannon digital camera that has an effect on there. It's a newer one in the SX series. You should check it out. It has a 35x zoom too!

  15. Oh really now?! I've been looking at getting a new Canon eventually! That's awesome that it has the effect on it. I'm definitely going to check it out! Thanks for the tip!

  17. You should go to Russia to enjoy our severe winter and a lot of snow. Then your spent Christmas will be really cool! :D

  18. I don't think I would. When I said it wasn't cold, I meant on campus. Home, three hours from there, it has usual winter conditions.

  20. Haha when It comes to be april in Minnesota and we still have snow on the groun, I am usually sick of it by then haha! but I love snow in the midst of winter. (we had an average of about a foot and a half the entire winter... sometimes more, with a lot of drifts that would get up to like 3 or 4 feet high. gotta love Minnesota.)

  21. Yeah, back at home we had a white Christmas and when it did snow it was like an average of like four-five inches. Which is always really nice, in my opinion... It's Georgia... Just south of Atlanta. You can't expect a ton.
