My daughter a while back complained (whined, exclaimed, etc.) in her blog about having 2" of snow on the ground.

We have been thru a long period of rain (not much rain in inches but lots of dreary dark days with light rain). It is my hypothesis that snow is better than rain. Snow covers the ground with a pretty white layer; whereas, rain just makes it ugly & muddy, Snow has to be shoveled but you can play in the snow much better than mud field!

“The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“A poet is someone who stands outside in the rain hoping to be struck by lightning.” James Dickey

“Sunshine cannot bleach the snow, Nor time unmake what poets know” Ralph Waldo Emerson

snow (n) 1 atmospheric water vapor frozen into ice crystals and falling in light white flakes or lying on the ground as a white layer 2 something that resembles snow in color or texture, in particular

ORIGIN Old English snāw, of Germanic origin; related to Dutch sneeuw and German Schnee, from an Indo-European root shared by Latin nix, niv- and Greek nipha.
