Avalanche

At my house, as soon as the temperatures begin to drop, we listen compulsively to 50 Words for Snow by Kate Bush“Avalanche” is number six, pronounced a-va-lahnche (like the French, I believe). It is Prof. Joseph Yupik’s sixth word for snow.

Don’t you know it’s not just the Eskimo, sings Kate.

So here it is, Lady. My first word for snow. The first of (I don’t know, maybe) multiple designs inspired by a bewitching work of musical and poetic genius.

Not a formal series or anything. Only the words for snow are so strange and simple and amazing, I can’t imagine not borrowing from their inspirational fount more than once.
