Smells like snow

Just having a bit of nostalgia and perhaps a bit of homesickness. They could go hand in hand really.

It's a very crisp autumn day with snow in the air. You can smell the snow. When I say that to people here they most often think I'm a bit odd.



But you can smell snow. We don't get much snow here. Not like where I grew up.

I sometimes say it even when it's not snowing.

"It smells like snow."

Then they really think I'm odd.


Add to the smell of a wood fire.

Crisp air. Snow. Wood fire.

Bliss.

I love the expression and I recognise it! Just like it smells of autumn, spring or summer.
I also like the smell of pancakes... ;)

You can smell snow, there is just something in the air. I was so happy that it snowed here, not a lot but its a start :)

Beautiful. It looks like that here in my part of Austria today too.
And I say that "smells like snow" too. Before it starts snowing, though *lol*

I can always smell the snow too! I love that crisp feeling amd misty air just before the flakes appear. Enjoy.
