Good observation! When my car broke down on me, I was footing it in the snow almost everyday. I loved the different colors that projected off the snow, also I think it would have been amazing if you could have found a way to make the snow and ice sparkle! That has always been my favorite part of the snow! :D
From Michigan to Florida seems like quite a stark contrast, at least during the winter, ha. But snow and ice do have a certain magic to them; I guess that makes up for the freezing temperatures during the colder months, lol.
