Washington, DC

View from my bus stop after the last round of snow in metro DC.

Here in Washington, DC, we're preparing for snow. As I ponder a weekend spent indoors with a lovely pile of books (thank goodness I'm not in charge of shoveling!), how fortuitous to stumble upon this quote by Edith Wharton.

The early mist had vanished and the fields lay like a silver shield . . .It was one of the days when the glitter of winter shines . . . .

What are your favorite literary quotes about snow or other seasonal weather? (And don't forget to visit The Big Read calendar to find out where there's some Big Reading taking place near you.)
