Maybe it's because a fresh blanket of snow seems so similar to a blank page with all of its promise and possibility. Maybe I like an excuse to stay inside with the finches for company at the side of my desk and the sound of the radiators humming. I like the quiet of a snow-hushed world or looking through the picture window over the computer monitor to see a male cardinal on a branch of the redbud tree, a cheery contrast to the powdered sugar-like landscape.
Snow makes me happy, and a happy writer is a productive writer!
