St. Louis blizzard of 1982 was the first winter I enjoyed in America. I remember playing in at least two-feet of snow in the front yard. My sisters and I didn’t have snow pants just winter coats and snow boots. We didn’t care how cold it was. We built a snow man, had snow ball fights, and laughed to our hearts content. That experience became my definition of Winter. One of the four-letter words I love to say out loud is SNOW and lots of it! That’s why it was very disappointing when the next few years didn’t compare to the 1st Winter Snow I ever experienced.
To this day, I look forward to the first blizzard or nor’easter. I love to watch snow falling and accumulate. Once the snow storm stops, I enjoy walking around my neighborhood before anyone else so that I get to make the 1st snow tracks. One of my best memories of living in New England was when my roommates and I walked around our neighborhood in the middle of a Nor’easter and then afterwards enjoyed hot cocoa (or maybe it was apple cider).
The Manhattan Transfer’s recording of “Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow” is a romantic ballad to listen and enjoy with your loved-one while slow dancing, or cuddling by the fireplace, or sipping your favorite hot beverage. Just picture the perfect Hallmark movie scene with this recording playing in the background. Listen on Spotify if you’re a subscriber or YouTube.
