What is your favorite type of weather?

I have a particular type of weather in mind when I hear this question. Unfortunately, its occurrences are few and far apart. I remember back when I was a child, it used to snow a whole lot more than it does now. And when I say snow, I clarify by saying a major snow of anywhere from six to twelve inches that would be with us for nearly a week’s time.

I remember getting out on my sled one morning. The roads were still thick with their ice/snow covering, perfect for sledding. But the clouds that had brought the white-laden ground had left and the sun would be shining brightly in the blue sky. While the snow would eventually start to melt, these morning hours of sub-freezing temperatures with the sun ablaze in the blue sky are without a doubt my favorite weather condition.

I had a similar event as an adult nearly twenty years ago, although I no longer would get out to test the icy roads with my sled. It had snowed quite a bit and the clouds had given way to the blue sky and the sun was shining brightly. It was so very quiet and pristine that morning and I would pay anything to have one more moment just like that.
