Describing Color

How do you describe color to someone who has never seen before? I never thought about something like that until I went outside, and to my shock, the weather was matching my snowflake pantoufles (house slippers). Everything was either white or black. I spent the day outside and my camera almost risked water damage, but I think it was worth it! (I also felt very clever and all that because I posted these on Instagram with the #somewherexelseinthewinter, the kind of thing that all the major, professional bloggers do!)

How do you describe the stillness of snow, or the way that it crunches under your feet to someone who has never heard before? 
I'm currently wondering if in Australia, 'summer vacation' is actually during the December-January months, since the seasons are the opposite in Australia of what they are here. I'd love for any of you from Australia to tell me! 

In any case, this was the shortest winter ever. The snow melted and the fresh, lovely cold flew away already.
