Let It Snow, #536

Standard

Tucson is a funny city.  When we get a little bit of rain, it’s the top of the news.  At this time of year, many times rain means that we’ll wake up to snow on our mountain tops.  It so rarely snows at a low enough elevation to touch Tucson, but seeing the snow towering over us is breathtaking.  Check this out.  You can see why I’d devote a blog to this topic.

It’s still dark outside as I write, but because it rained all night last night, my fingers are crossed for a little bit of winter magic when the sun comes up.

When I grew up in Ohio, I hated the snow…I mean I really really despised it.  Now that I live in the desert, however, I ache for it.  I even look forward to snowy vacations.  Snow, to me, really is a little magical. (just as long as I don’t have to live in it for long periods of time)

So…to those of my blog readers who live in snowy climates, remember to appreciate what you’ve got.  I know that snow can be a pain in the rear, but it really is very beautiful.

On that happy note, my song of the day is “Let it Snow.”  This is the Dean Martin version set to the lovely visual aid of “Bambi!”  Click HERE to check out this very sweet video and to hear a beautiful song for a beautiful topic.  Enjoy!!  Happy winter, y’all!

About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
