My thoughts turn to the Bible and what it says about snow in the books of Job and Psalms. I know snow is mentioned in a number of other Bible books, but these verses came to my mind and I thought I would share them:
"Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail ... ?
"Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it?
"The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen." (Job 38:22, 29-30)
And here is the answer as to where the snow, frost, and ice come from:
"God thundereth marvelously with His voice; great things doeth He, which we cannot comprehend.
"For He saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth; likewise to the small rain, and to the great rain of His strength ...
"Out of the south cometh the whirlwind, and cold out of the north.
"By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened." (Job 37:5-6, 9-10)
"He sendeth forth His commandment upon earth; His word runneth very swiftly.
"He giveth snow like wool: He scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.
"He casteth forth His ice like morsels: who can stand before His cold?" (Psalm 147:15-17)
Beautiful ... just like the snow itself.
