A date with snow

Every year as december approaches all the movie channels show movies around christmas. As a child I used to dream about seeing snowfall. I had been at tourist places covered with snow but somehow I wanted to see how it started.

It was 26th nov’2014. It was chilly with temperature at 5 degree celcius. Further it was raining but there was something different about it. The water was way too cold. Slowly we saw snow flakes falling with water. After a few minutes, there was no water only snow. I couldn’t resist standing out. The snow kept on falling. Soon everything seemed to be covered with a nice white sheet.

Although it was cold, still me and my roomie went out for a walk. Standing under the trees with snow everywhere around I remembered the following lines:

Under the greenwood tree
who loves to lie with me
and tune his merry note
unto the greenbird’s throat

There are times when we dream and just keep it aside thinking it may never come true. I think sometimes they come true and when they do we are so happy that we forget to thank almighty. Let us remember how many of our dreams have come true and thank God. If there is any that is yet to be fulfilled, don’t lose hope, you never know when it may come true.

A snow covered memory

Today’s challenge was to add more personalization to my blog. When I sat to think about it, the first thing that came to my mind was snow covered mountains and roads. This brought back memories of an amazing trip with friends.

I was brought up in a warm place in India. I always used to fantasize snow as I had never seen it. Once I got an opportunity to visit Aspen with my friends during thanksgiving. It was an amazing trip which got finalized just two days before leaving. Six of us drove in a car from Dallas to Aspen. As we started going towards aspen, the sights I saw left me spellbound. I still remember it fresh. We reached Aspen around 12:00 am. It was warm inside car but the moment I stepped out, it was a dream come true. My feet just landed on snow. I was not able to believe it and wanted to play with snow as soon as possible. But we were also tired of driving so we dozed off as soon as we went to our rooms.

It snowed all night. The next day I saw snow covered roads, houses and mountains. I felt as if I was in some fairy tale. We also went and saw a park full of snow. This blog just gave me an opportunity to preserve that beautiful memory. This exercise has allowed me to learn about headers and backgrounds. Probably I will change these based on my blog posts.
