The first snow....

Well its bin almost a month since its bin snowing out here...but then every time it snows I always feel that im seeing it snow for the first time(not that i was walking around blind folded the previous time...). Ithe alyapasun, one American trait i follow, n that is to check the forecast the first thing i get up in the morning(or afternoon/or night...wotever)...coming back to the point, my day really kickstarts if i see "snow flurries expected"/"slight chance of snow" announcement......which means that 90% of the times it'd be snowing....pretty accurate this forecast thingy is out here!! So yes, as i was saying, snow really excites me...turns me on, one can add innocently;)...I love the way everything turns a very high quality, pure white when it snows.....simply love to walk through the snow(though its quite a pain for the muscles), love the crunchy noise the snow boots make against the thick layer n simply relish the taste of snow...believe me iv actually eaten fresh snow off railings (makes me sounds crazy...but im not:D)....it tastes nice and mildly sweet and yea, it "melts in the mouth"...:DThe RPI campus looks even more beautiful when its all white.....especially, the snow covered lawns, bare trees, deserted and beautifully and brightly lit (God only knows how much money is spent on the unecessary 'roshnai') campus....no words to describe itMe india madhe astanahi snow pahila hota, when i had gone for the Manali trek, n i love to do maaz about this fact:)...but had never seen the snow 'fall' before.....it looks so fairylandish believe me!!...and one fascinating new thing i learnt about the flurries is that the star shape which they mostly show in cartoons n kids'- books while depicting snow, is actually how a snow flurry looks when observed closely...me try suddha kela mazhya Chocolate(dats my cell between;) chya cam var capture karayla to flurry cha shape....ok sorts ala pic! ...(sorry non-marathi people, for frequent outbursts in marathi!!!)I always find some reason to go out and take a walk when it is actually snowing.....(once i remember i attended an early morning 10 am lecture just because it was snowing outside and i wanted to walk in the snow)...snow and water still (i meant waterfalls, beaches, water sports) remain the only 2 things that makes the child in me come alive and kicking:)...Hope this wasnt true, but yes, snow will always be my first love....
