First snow in Concord 2003

Well, snow fans, the day has finally arrived. Today is the first snowfall in Massachusetts this season, and the webcam has captured it all. If a few snapshots just don't do it for you, then you can always relish this short video from where ever you are...


Seems an appropriate time to quote from my favorite Nothern Exposure character, Chris Stevens, played by John Corbett. Chris read this poem over KBHR radio during the December 1993 episode.




Oh the snow the beautiful snow
filling the sky and earth below.
Over the house tops and over the streets,
over the heads of people you meet.
Dancing flirting skimming along.
Oh the snow the beautiful snow
how the flakes gather and laugh as they go.
Whirling about in their maddening fun
it plays in its glee with everyone.
Chasing laughing hurrying by
it lights on the face and sparkles the eye.
And even the dogs with a bark and a bound
snap at the crystals that eddy around.
The town is alive and its heart in a glow
to welcome the coming of beautiful snow.


Later I found the souce here...
