When Rain Turns Into Snow

This week's SongSpot is from Alastair Moock's song 'When Rain Turns Into Snow' from his album Walking Sounds.

Suddenly the weather really cooled down here in Wisconsin. A little over a week ago, we were hitting fairly comfortable temperatures (over 60°F/15.5°C) for this time of year. Now we are only hitting daytime highs of about 28°F/-2°C. Sweater weather to full-on Winter coats. Oh well, our family really likes to play in the snow and now we have a couple inches. Hopefully it will last and accumulate.

This song uses the phrase "love turns into memories when rain turns into snow" to express the rather depressing feeling when falling out of love. So it really doesn't fit the happy feelings we have with the onset of Winter and the switch from the cold, wet, and sloppy rain into beautiful, graceful and playful snow.
