Foster (Chapter 10 and 12)

Wallace Stevens uses snow to indicate inhuman, abstract thought, particularly thought concerned with nothingness, "Nothing that is not there and the nothing that is," as he puts it.

I thought this was interesting. My mom has always been told that during winter people get depressed or are just kind of blah (I guess you can say it that way lol). That's what snow represented to her so I thought that this was kind of funny because depression, to me, is like you feel you have nothing left...well that's a part of it.
