Confetti

The snow was so perfect, flakes big enough that I could touch them and carry them off my eyelashes. It was nearly blinding, sticking to every bit of me that it could reach -- swirling through the air, those little bits of white. It almost felt like confetti, like I was at a birthday party for my snow-covered self.

Makes me almost like the snow. :)

Actually, I do like snow. But not in March, when the day before I could wear shorts.

Nicely done!
