Winter Wonderland

The Northeastern United States has been inundated with snow this year. 
I haven't experienced a Winter with this much icy precipitation in a long time.
Many of the city streets that I must navigate to get to work are reduced to one lane.
The snow under the birdfeeders is so deep that the squirrels can reach them by standing on their hind legs.
Local radio stations are having how much are you sick and tired of the snow contests.
We have Cabin fever.

Then....just as I think I can't take another minute of it we have a day like Saturday.
It snowed about another foot of heavy almost Spring snow on Friday.
We grumbled.
We complained.
We shoveled.

Saturday morning came with clear blue skies and temperatures in the high 30's. They turned all that snow into a Winter wonderland that made me happy just to see it and be outside.


  1. Love the snow, it perks me up the min it starts to fall. The light reflects off it making it so much brighter. That said I still haven't gotten much done this week as I've been playing in the snow!

  2. Enjoy it while you can. it's getting warmer every day.
