Over the last couple of days, we’ve had some lovely temperate weather, so most of the snow that has been hugging the ground since December, is gone. But today, we’ve got a winter advisory, not for snow, but for cold with wind. I decided cold weather feels less out of place when there is snow on the ground, rather than icy winds whipping the bare brown trees and kicking up little clouds of the salty sand that has been left behind after the melt. That got me to thinking – Is there an Irish word for snow? Of course there is! The Irish word of the day is an Sneachta. It is pronounced: on SCHNOCKtuh.
