Snow or not snow

There’s no snow in Miami or Tripoli, Sydney or Calcutta. But in Novosibirsk, West Siberia, they have enough. Does snow change our minds and moods, culture and horizons? Or the monsoon? Or living in a sand desert? No matter, which weather occurs to our souls???

  2. Weathering our souls–I really got that point as I studied these breath-taking photos of extreme opposites of weather conditions. Weathered souls work sort of like weathered shingling on a house–they sort of overlap and curve and tighten to carry us through storms and calms and all in-between.

  7. Beautiful question. I love the similarities in the pics. One person’s snow seems to be another’s sand.

  8. In our area, snowfall cleans the dirty air trapped in the valleys (called “inversion” here) and gives a bright clean crisp feeling. I live in an area with all four seasons. WInter would not be the same for me without snow.
