Snow! Snow! Snow!

I always love the first snow of the season, and here it is! Yaaaaaay!

The flakes are huge now, and falling softly. I am reminded of many moments in various Japanese anime where cherry blossoms, etc., are obeying gravity, and then don't, falling upwards instead.[*] These flakes look so light I could see them do the same if I just looked away at the right moment and then sneaked a glance back out of the corner of my eye.

[*] As an art form, I love many of the liberties anime takes with, oh, everything.
