when it snows on a saturday night

my favorite thing is when it snows on a saturday night.
because sundays are just quiet in utah.
especially if you don't have 9am church.
and your entire neighborhood slowly starts buzzing with snow blowers.
and then an atv will plow down your sidewalks.
and another neighbor might do your driveway.
and when you finally decide to surface out into the snow,
the cool air wakes you up with the freshest,
cleanest air
you've ever felt on your face.
and the snow crunches under your boots.
and if the sun comes out,
everything just glows perfectly white.
and sometimes the sparkles on top of the snow just glisten,
like someone spilled glitter all over the world while we slept.
and it's just quiet,
except for the snow blowers:)

I love the peaceful muted sound of the morning after a snowfall, too. Somehow it is just so much more magical on a sunny morning.
