Janet's late mother saw a hovering Angel when she had a stroke while she was driving and had a car accident. She managed to fully recover from the stroke. Years later and after Janet's Mom had passed on, while watching Janet drive off in a snowstorm, Jeff imagined her mother as an Angel watching over her. Shortly after, when returning through a snowstorm from a funeral for her Uncle Edwin (a WW II veteran), the roads were treacherous and slippery. Jeff and Janet were safely guided home by following a logging truck (a rare time to be grateful to be caught behind one). When the truck entered the Saint John river valley the lights of Fredericton exposed the image of an Angel In The Snow on top of the load of logs. Angel, take us home.

Lyrics

Angel in the Snow © Jeff Patch SOCAN

I said "My little one, watch where you go."
"Bye" said the pretty one, "Be careful, I know."
Off she goes down the road
Blowing cold, lots of snow
I look up, she's overhead I know

There she goes
Angel in the snow
Flying low
Angel in the snow

Winter drive from Chipman with ice on the road
We said "Goodbye Edwin," then we had to go home
in the dark caught behind
load of popple going stateside
There ahead she finds the sign and she knows

There, there in the load
Angel in the snow
Flying low
Angel in the snow
There she goes
Angel in the snow
Flying low
Angel, take us home
