Today while I was running, I had the
most awesome experience! I was running in the tracks in the snow when I noticed the
snow was like nothing I have ever seen. (...And I've been around a
little snow in my lifetime!) The frost was actually standing up in
little crystallized formations on the snow. I could not help myself and had to
squat right down and take a closer look.
you see the sparkle? Look at all of those little sparkly diamonds!
Where the frost was standing up, it caught the morning sunshine just
perfectly! I was wishing I was running with my daughters' Rebel T3I and
not my phone, (that'd be cute!) this picture doesn't really do it
short story.... I was writing this post and my way smart husband came
and sat down beside me. The original title of this post was "Have You
Heard The Sound Of Snow."
He said, "You know that's frost, don't you?"
He went on to explain that it's called "hoar frost."
I had no idea actually..... and how the heck does he know that? I
turned to him and said that exact thing. "How in the world do you know
something like that??"
Does everybody know this? Am I the only one who didn't?
Anyway... that's beside the point. Let's move on to the fun part.
I bent down to run my hand along the frost, and it actually made a beautiful noise! It topped off my morning run perfectly, out in the silence with no one around, only the beauty of nature communicating with my spirit.
It's quiet, you might want to put on the headphones.
