This weekend we were covered in a blanket of snow. As I watched the flakes float down past the window, I thought about how the mood the snow created felt different to how snow should. Usually when I think about snow, I imagine children laughing and playing, throwing snowballs and building snowmen or I imagine a Christmas are scene where the snow covers a thatched roof laced with fairy lights – all twinkling and magical.
But this snow seemed to create a more melancholic mood. The sky turned grey, the birds disappeared and a stillness settled. The snow covered bare branches and made the landscape seem desolate and eerie. It made me want to stare in the distance and think about life and love. Just shows how much weather can affect our mood.
What mood does snow create for you?
