Quotes About January Snow

January snow lay thick on the ground—crusty, pitted, and hardened, some of it like the bubbly honeycomb of air-dried sea foam in the tide wrack down at the beach, the sort of snow that stays so long you get used to the intrusion of that world of uninvited white, a hooded subverted landscape, sparkling in the low flame of a sallow sunrise on a winter morning.

Frost in January minus 20 for a week. Dead birds frozen on the branch-they fall with the first thaw like ripe fruit-death-ripened. We shall all end like them-just a stain in the snow.

— Lawrence Durrell

January is here, with eyes that keenly glow,
A frost-mailed warrior
striding a shadowy steed of snow.

When the snow is still blowing against the window-pane in January and February and the wild winds are howling without, what pleasure it is to plan for summer that is to be.
