Snowy afternoon at the movies

Yesterday afternoon my younger sister Chandra and I went to the movies. It was a cold, snowy day, so it seemed like a perfect day for the movies. (Although I think ANY day is a perfect day for the movies, rain or shine!) Watching just one movie never seems like enough, so we saw two.

The first movie we saw was The Adjustment Bureau with Matt Damon (one of my favorite actors). It was a sci-fi thriller that was a definite nail-biter. The second movie we saw was Red Riding Hood, which was a new, more mature take on the classic children's fairy tale. This movie was also quite suspenseful since you didn't know who the Wolf was until the end of the movie. I really liked both movies and I didn't have to worry about falling asleep  since they were both so suspenseful!
As I already said, it was a cold, snowy day. It had just started snowing when I arrived at the movie theater, and when I came out of my first movie two hours later, it looked like a blizzard outside. It was snowing so hard and the flakes were huge, like little cotton balls. The snow had tapered off a bit after the second movie, and there were several inches of snow on our van that we had to brush off. The snow picked up again after we got home, and altogether we probably got around 6 inches of perfect snowman snow.

I know it's spring and we probably shouldn't be getting snow, but I loved how the heavy/slushy snow coated the trees and made everything look beautiful. I laughed to myself every time I saw an irate comment about the snow on Facebook yesterday. Why can't people just relax, enjoy the beauty and realize that the snow will melt quickly since the temperatures are above freezing?

I think St. Louis has gotten more snow this year than Salt Lake. We must be living in the last days! What did you think of the movies? I've seen the Adjustment Bureau, but I haven't see Little Red Riding Hood.

I agree that we should just relax and enjoy the beauty of snow. Spring will get here soon!
