    Magic Falling There are the days that are dreary and overcast. The mood is sullen and dark, and the family is bored. The cold reaches to the bone and chills throughout the body. The tree branches are stark bare, their leaves stripped off in the fall; their beauty gone. Dirt covers the wet snow that lays uneven over the yard, or piled on the side of the driveway. Yet, there are the days of magic, when fresh, fluffy snow bursts through the clouds and surrounds everything. The flakes lightly touch...

  • Analytical Interpretation Of The Tale Of Snow White
    647 words
    An Analytical Interpretation of "Snow-White" Throughout the story of Snow-White, Competition is played out in numerous ways. As the famous saying goes-only the strongest survive and to the victor go the spoils. There were a few power struggles going on even under the primary plot. This is one way to describe some of the seemingly bizarre or extreme motivations that push the story to a grisly, but happy ending. The first queen apparently dies in childbirth (but do we really know this for sure? )...

    Each year as the temperature drops people dread the cold weather. That's not the case at all for me. I look forward to seeing the weather drop and the snow fall.

The days are longer, there is more plant life, and several animals come out of hibernation. During the cold weather the temperature varies from mildly warm to freezing cold.

    394 words
    Alpine skiing derives its name from the mountain range, The Alps in Europe, where the sport developed in the late 1800's as a means of moving down snow-covered slopes. Skiing spread to other parts of the world and is now done primarily at ski resorts on specially cut trails.

Various surface lifts which pull skiers up the hill while they rema...

    Three and a half thousand metres in altitude, North of Italy, and just on the borderline tower the great, frosted-topped Alps. As two mountainsides melt into a valley, a small, snowy town meets. Clouds glide above and below, like mystical white pillows, that softens and creates a warm glow of the suns powerful and reflective glare. The warm glow beats gently onto the crusty-surfaced snow that covers the mountains in a soft, white thick duvet. Nature lies snuggled underneath the snow, hibernatin...
  • Grimm's Fairy Tales Comparison
    1,383 words
    All of the fairy tales that I have read have all had a deep meaning or lesson to tell the reader. These stories do not all clearly show the reader these messages. As I have found, in most cases I must examine the text and re-read the stories to try to find out any hidden themes or moral lessons. Fairy tales make good learning tools for children and adults as well. Through examining the Complete Grimm's Fairy Tales book, I can see that the lessons that are told can be interpreted in many differen...

    Romantic writers find beauty and authenticity in the supernatural realm. William Cullen Bryant and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow provide excellent samples of works of Romantic poetry with their poems, "Thanatopsis" and "The Cross of Snow." In "Thanatopsis," Bryant attempts to describe the ways in which life after death is superior to life on Earth. In Longfellow's poem, he mourns the lost of his wife.

    What is a avalanche? To most of you it is the fall of snow from the top of a slope. Well you are partially right. It is snow but it can also be several other things such as soil, rock, ice, or volcanic lava. Although most of the time a avalanche is snow it can be rock or soil. Most avalanches occur on slopes exceeding 30 degrees (Encarta 1. ) They are caused by temperature, creeping snow, or vibrations. There are three main types of avalanches (Walker 6-7. ) They are slab, dry-snow, and wet-sno...
