SECOND SNOWFALL

Why does the second snowfall over the first and greater amount of snow seem less welcome, less quaint, less alluring? After receiving over eight inches of snow earlier in the week that created a winter wonderland, we awoke today to more falling snow. It continues to snow this afternoon with an accumulation of over 3 inches. It's beautiful. I cross-country skied at Eagle Creek Park this morning in the falling snow. But the new round of snow doesn't grab my heart and imagination like the initial downpour. Still, I'll take this over barren cold, rain, and merely gray cloud cover anytime.
