Snow is way more than that fluffy white stuff drifting gently from the sky. It is, get this, frozen crystalline water, thin enough to be referred to as flakes. No two snowflakes are the same, have ever been the same and will never be the same, ever. So try to imagine how many unique designs that would include. Oh, and also not the same as any other year past or to come. Wheww, a bazillion, gazillion designs
To experience a snow job is not a task somehow doing something with snow. It is to have someone try to fool me, sell me a thing or idea, as if falling snow obscures all the facts. A snow blast is a fierce wind gust while it is snowing quite intensely. A snow fort is what we used to build as children (and still now with grandchildren) that is, as best as we can, a pretend house made out of snow.
Lots and lots of snow was a special treat because when I got to school, the few students there got to go to the gym and play. We also got to go out to the schoolyard and play in a maze that we would make in that deep white fluffy plain. It was the best. My adult relationship with big snow is similar though getting to and from work took a while. Still, shovelling a really tall pile was still play
Snowbirds come in many varieties. Birds you may well see in winter include Goshawk, Bunting and Crossbill, to name a very few of the many. These are birds that thrive in spite of the snow. Another kind of snowbird is the RCAF aerial acrobatic team flying aircraft bringing us entertainment awe. Then we, of course, have the people who migrate south for the winter, whom we also refer to as snowbirds
There are a number of different kinds of snow. Powder snow is to die for if you are a skier. Crystal snow is the kind that one finds in extreme cold where the flakes are almost like tiny grins of salt. It crunches when you walk on it. Where I live we have polite snow. That is the kind that falls all around but only stays on the mountains around our Valley. Down here, most of the time, it melts before noon.
