There’s no snow like new snow

In the background, "Unwanted, unlived, unloved"

It’s always a bit of a thrill to see the first snow of Winter to fall. As I’ve always said, the whiteness of of the blanketing snow hides all that is dirty and ugly.

Big white powder snow falling like so much feather dander from the sky. A huge distraction, pretty to look at, but given a week of it, it becomes a slippery peril to walk on.

It’s snow fun

The long-awaited first snow fall has, well, fallen. It’ll aways be a bit of a gimmick to me since Winter time in New Zealand just means rain, wind and general misery because of it.

The snow, looks nice and also covers all the dirt and ugliness. But after a couple of days, the snow freezes to ice and then it just becomes annoying. You have to take care of where you step for fear of slipping and falling on your arse.

The picture was taken on the road outside my apartment.  The trees would make nice Christmas trees if they were decorated.
