Something About the Winter That I Like

Updated on April 25, 2018

One thing I love about winter is the widespread snow on the ground, on the trees, on the roofs and buildings, on the roads, and everywhere.

Something about the Snow that I Like

All the grass outside, the trees, cars, houses and everything on the outside world is covered in white snow. What a beautiful scenery to look at and enjoy. People walking their dogs, children enjoying the snow, making snowman and riding their sledges while their parents cheer and keep an eye on them.

Sometimes we always think of the negative effects of winter like it's too cold for us, our heating bills go up, sometimes due to heavy snow we can not get to work, me included but I still like the snow and its whiteness. There is something about the snow that excites me. You might think I am mad but there are things I really like about the winter.

There are still positive effects why I like winter. Apart from doing things like crocheting, cooking, cleaning, listening to music indoors, I enjoy watching the falling snow outside. Maybe because we have no snow in the Philippines I am so drawn to the snow. I also go out for walks during the winter and take loads of photos because I do appreciate the beauty of snowy wonderland.

I just love the whiteness of the snow and the way it covers everything on the earth's surface. Ah, it's just so amazing and so beautiful to look at and enjoy. I just want to enjoy the snow while it's there because it won't stay for long. Soon it melts away and soon it will be gone.

I also like waiting for the daffodils to start opening their lovely buds smiling like the sun. The blue bells and tulips coming out, the roses leaves start to shoot out, the leaves of the apple, plum and my pear trees suddenly come out. How wonderful it is to witness these happen during the last month of winter.

Sadly, winter is nearly over but there is something more to look forward to, the springtime. More blooming flowers and fruit trees to look forward to and more to enjoy. Another thing I like about winter I learnt about hubbing. I shall tell my friends to start hubbing especially during wintertime. Lots of things to do, hopefully next winter I will become an expert hubber.

The Negative Effects of Snow

The Negative effects of winter that I do not like are: the plants die, the roads get blocked with ice, the paths can get slippery due to the snow, the water outside turns into ice, the cars don't start straightaway sometimes, our heating bills go up, the rooftops are full of snow and it is freezing that sometimes we don't want to go out.

Despite these negative effects of winter, I won't miss the opportunity to go out there and explore the white snow on the ground. It is so magical to see the white snow everywhere you go.

        I am sorry Richaloe, this winter seems to linger a bit longer. Never mind, spring will be here soon.

        Omg that is terrible. We don't get much snow here in the south except once I remember. They might have had it in the past.

        Every now and then we get a snowstorm that dumps over 30cm on us. A couple of years ago I was snowbound for a couple of days.

        Hi! Robert,

        We are in the south of England but we have little snow while in the north, they got a lot of snow.

        You are right Robert there are good and bad things about winter but I still like it though. Thanks for reading my hub.

      • Robert Sacchi profile image

        Robert Sacchi 3 months ago

        Yes, there is something about falling snow and a snow covered landscape. There is also the parts we don't like. We have to admit these parts we don't like are also adventurous.

        This was a sweet little essay that I quite enjoyed. I like winter, too, although it seems to be coming all too soon here in Canada. (Some of my neighbours to the West have already gotten snow!)

        I loved your pictures, too. Take care.

        Absolutely. For more on that, you might read my 8 hubs on Go Green and global climate change. And see the movie Chasing Ice - it's an amazing presentation - beautiful - of the physical evidence.

        Winter is very cold, but I enjoy the snow, too! I like the changing seasons. Every one has its own charm. I think Spring is a beautiful thing to look forward to after a cold Winter, but I also think that Winter is something to look forward to after hot weather. Every season makes me appreciate the next so much more.

        Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us, as well as the pretty photos.

        This is a lovely positive take on winter - so refreshing - although I'm not sure I'd be so keen - we have occasional snow here and in the mountains where people ski. I have to say it looks beautiful in your photos. And,a s you say, soon spring will be with you and those lovely spring flowers shooting through the earth. Autumn here and the leaves are turning...

        You are doing an excellent job, liesl5858, and it is really good that you are using your own beautiful photos. If you go back to edit your hub, and then edit your photos, you will see there is a box that says "source". That's where you write: "Photo by liesl5858" or "Photo by liesl5858 - author." Some people write their real names in the source box when they are using their own photos.

        There are different rules when you are not using your own original photos, and you can learn those rules in the Learning Center. But I hope you keep sharing your own lovely photos! Anyway, it is just a hint to help your hub climb higher so more people see it.

        :)

        What a lovely hub, and great photos! Welcome to HubPages, liesl5858. I will be keeping an eye out for more of your hubs. I know you're a newbie so I'll give you a gentle prod to go back into your photos, and add yourself as the 'source' of the photo. It will help your hub rate higher.

        Thanks for reminding me of the wonderful things about winter. It is a beautiful thing to write about. I'm amazed by your middle picture. It looks as if that tree is huge. Is it really that big? The snow is beautiful.
