Snow fall

Delicately falling, silently through the crisp night air. Teeny tiny little snowflakes dance through in the wind. Pushing them around in swirling circles. Creating small tornadoes of snow traversing across the flat snow covered land. Tossing the infinitely different sizes and shapes that make up the snow flakes as they fly around. Then they hit the ground silently, only to be seen by the nocturnal creatures, who were staying close to each other to stay warm.

The snow began to then gather together in little groups, clinging to each other and and freezing to each one another like interlocking hugs. Though they were bigger, the massive wind still pushed them around just as much as the tiny single flakes who were so desperately finding one another to hold onto each other. To not be alone in their plummet to the ground filled with all the other layers of snow.

There had been shoe print in the snow earlier that night, but with the heavy fall of the snow they had been covered up quite quickly. At first you could see the idea that there was a print of something that had walked by, but only a shallow imprint had been left by the first dusting of snowflakes. As the Heavier snowflakes started to gather the prints had been filled in and just a little bubble of snow was left behind. Quickly covered up by the swirling snow storms, whipping them right out of the way and over little snow drifts.

Each piece of grouped snowflakes was a bit heavier than the last bunch and packed the snow underneath down nice and firm. Blanketing the still slightly warm ground, insulating it just a little bit more. It made the frozen grass lay down as though it were taking a long hibernating nap. Laying across one another creating a hidden green and brown layer from beneath the snow blanket.

It snowed and it snow and it snowed for some very long hours. The white fluff fell down so heavy, because the air was slowly starting to get a bit warmer. This was causing the snowflakes to melt slowly. So they began to freeze over the moment they hit the white blanket of snow. Creating a thin icy crust to the top of the snowbank, allowing the snow beneath to stay fluffy and non collecting. There would be a nice hard icy crust by the morning time.

The Snowflakes were now gaining more speed and was a lot more like slush being pelted through the air at high speed. If it were to hit your face it would sting. It would leave your face cold and wet, because it would melt not quite instantly, but the moment you would put your fingers to it, it would finish the process, and the snowflakes would be water once again.

Further in the land where the we snow fall was not so heavy, the snowflakes laden the tree branches and covered them in tiny little blankets. Sides of the tree limbs were poking out from underneath. The branches were bowing with the weight of the Snowflakes piled on top of each other. Some of the tree branches were so full wit snow that they pointed almost strait down, creating little cave like areas that blocked the wind out. The branches were strong and resilient against the snow, just not strong enough to stand all the way up. The weight from the millions upon millions of snowflakes was just too much for the branches to stay up, so they stayed bent down for while the snow was to stay.
