Snow Drifter

This shot is completely unedited. I say that because it makes the picture as magical, momentous and….think of another word that begins with ‘M’… More real. 🙂
It was close to midnight and in the middle of January. As soon as I settled into my cotton-filled heaven (my bed), I get a phone call saying that I need to come outside. I look out the window to see an incredible amount of snow falling and  I tell my roommate, who happens to be my best friend of 15 years, to get her warmest clothes on. I’m in a dorm…on campus… it’s basically a blizzard so, what do you think I walked into? Practically every student throwing snowballs! I mean I’ve never been a part of such a massive snowball fury fest! Yes, I said fury fest. I like to use strange combinations of words to describe things, you’ll get used to it. 😉 Any who, I happened to have grabbed my Nikon point and shoot camera and just started snapping as many pictures as I could to keep this unpredictable moment alive. This is a picture of the person who called me to come outside. He’s a cowboy. No I mean he is a REAL cowboy, he has cows and horses and that hat. I’m so glad I got this shot because if it weren’t for this snow-drifter I would have never had the chance to see how all the college “adults” could turn back into kids in the midst of weather’s flurry fest! See what I did there? Fury…Flurry..I need to stop.
