Hala's Snow passion goes Global

Today, while I was sorting out tons of links and bookmarks, I discovered that I keep these two email from Cheryl during baw07. They made me feel like I am really smelling and touching snow not ( It is boiling now here).

Dearest Hala,
Snow has a distinct smell right before it falls from the sky. In
Maine, there are many days and evenings prior to a snowstorm that one
can step outside and smell the snow in the air. Have you ever smelt
rain prior to the storm? Well, the best way to describe snow before a
storm is that is is about 30 degrees F colder, and the smell is crisp.
I just checked my freezer smell and while it doesn't mimic the true
smell, there is a correlation, minus the food smells.
Hope that helps. Hala, I will catch a snowflake on my tongue and taste
it for you!
Taste of snow description much later,

To Hala the poet and artist with words.
Hala your words are always so descriptive and full of emotion.
I see you face and hear your words by the way you write!
Keep making our threads personal.
It makes me think about how I am writing messages to people.
In the middle of a blizzard.

Cheryl, snowstorm in Maine. USA
