As you probably know by now, The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard watch for winter storm Stella, starting on the evening of Mar. 13 and leading into Mar. 14 on the Northeast Coast. Accumulation is expected to reach anywhere between 18-24 inches, and hazards like closed roads, power outages and damaging winds are anticipated. What this means for people in the path of snowpacalypse is a few things: it's time to majorly stock up on snacks, it's time to queue up a Netflix marathon in case work is canceled, and it's time to majorly hype ourselves up over the storm to make the most of it.

As it's March, Daylight Saving Time just kicked in, and I'm sure many of us (wrongly) thought we were well on our way to jean jackets and outdoor brunches. So news of a snowstorm and the thought of all that snow that will cover the ground for weeks to come is slightly depressing. Iced coffee season was so close, and now it feels so far. So if you too need some help getting yourself psyched for the storm, here are some quotes about snow that will change your attitude. They'll make you excited for the chaos and help you rationalize that a snowstorm in March is magical and not miserable. Stay warm with these poetic quotes:

"Snow provokes responses that reach right back to childhood." — Andy Goldsworthy

"Kindness is like snow — it beautifies everything it covers." — Kahlil Gibran

"The very fact of snow is such an amazement." — Roger Ebert

"The snow doesn't give a soft white damn whom it touches." — E.E. Cummings

"Thank goodness for the first snow. It was a reminded — no matter how old you became and how much you'd seen — things could still be new if you were willing to believe they still mattered." — Candace Bushnell

"Snow was falling, so much like stars filling the dark trees that one could easily imagine its reason for being was nothing more than prettiness." — Mary Oliver

"I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says 'Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.' And when they wake up in the summer, Kitty, they dress themselves all in green, and dance about — whenever the wind blows." — Lewis Carroll

"Well, I know now. I know a little more how much a simple thing like a snowfall can mean to a person." — Sylvia Plath
