It snowed all night. I opened the blinds and watched it fall so softly to the ground. The pure whiteness of the snow lit up the night like hundreds of tiny fireflies. Wrapped in my warm blanket with a new chillness in the air I fell asleep with dreams of sleighrides, snowmen and hot chocolate prancing around in my head. The words to Silent night drifted across my lips and deep sleep overcame me. Old Man Winter is officially here.
