There’s something magical about waking up to snow falling outside my window.
It’s a highly anticipated event that happens rarely in my life – being from Australia and all – but the usually mild-weathered Anacortes has really let it snow this past week. I’ve been loving every moment!
While of course there are downsides to snow (driving in particular!), it’s still such a novelty to me. It will be hard to ever remove the rose-tinted glasses that I adorn each time the air becomes crisp and the snowflakes fall.
To some, a snow day is the perfect opportunity to stay indoors. To me, it’s the time to rug up and head outside. Wander the streets, walk through the woods, sip tea in our backyard, and take a million photos of this winter wonderland.
It’s fascinating to see the town in a canvas of white. Even just a light dusting totally transforms the landscape. With most cars and pedestrians off the road, it also becomes tremendously silent and peaceful.
Each time I see snow in Washington, I remind myself to appreciate every moment I have living abroad. Someday soon I will be back to sweating my butt off in Australia, and desperately longing for the cold!
Here’s a few snaps I captured of snow in Anacortes.
Till we meet again, snow.
Here’s hoping for lots more snow in Anacortes this winter!
Pin this post for later!
