The First Snow


LORELAI: Take a deep breath.
LUKE: What?
LORELAI: Do it.
LUKE: Yeah.
LORELAI: Oh, yeah. I smell snow.
LUKE: What?
LORELAI: It’s coming. I always know. I can smell it, and I’m never wrong.
LUKE: It wasn’t in the forecast.
LORELAI [sighs happily]: It’s just my favorite time of the year. The whole world changes color.
LUKE: I think I’m blacking out.
LORELAI: Flakes, flurries, swirls, crystals, whatever form it comes in. I’ll take it. We go back, snow and me. We have a beautiful history.
LUKE: Saw two forecasts, there was no mention of snow. Cold, but no snow.
LORELAI: Sleigh rides, ice skating, snowball fights. I’ll even take curling. God, I love curling!
LUKE: Lance Cranston on Channel 6 said it would be dry. Kimmy Liston, Live at 5, same thing. No snow, nothing.
LORELAI: Hot cocoa, hot toddies. Best time of the year!
LUKE: Jimmy Mountain in Accu-Chopper One said it would be weeks before
-[He stops and looks up as the snow starts to fall.]
LUKE: Lance and Kimmy are idiots.
LORELAI: Welcome, friend.
LUKE: I’m going inside now.
LORELAI: But –
LUKE: One more whiff, and then so are you.
LORELAI: Luke –

I love this show. I’m having serious problems this season….and last as a matter of fact, but if nothing else, I’m loyal.

My favorites are always the first snow episodes…it’s magical and it makes me love it. After the horriffic winter of 98’99 in Michigan, I thought I’d never love the stuff again…but I do.

We are getting our first snow today. 3-6 inches THEY say. We’ll see. It was 70 degrees at 5 am today, so it probably won’t stay too long.

I’m going to enjoy it….
