Not the first rain yet

I thought it is the first rain of the year mixed with the gust of the wind. I kept on saying “you hear it, it is rain, and it is the first rain of the year”. I do believe it is the first rain because the sound on the roof seems it is rain. When I look outside, oh my, it is snow. When I think of rain, I am thinking of colorful flowers, beautiful gardens and I ask “Is it spring time now?” I am looking forward to spring time and at the same time enjoying the coolness of the snow here in Colorado Springs.
