Winter Returns


To my delight, winter has returned.  The snow started on Wednesday late afternoon and steadily fell through out the night.  On Thursday, the "storm" left two inches but delightfully the flakes fell slowly and danced in the air.


January snow is my favorite but really any snow would be my favorite in that moment of time.  Heavy snow with large flakes that fall straight down and melts upon walking.  The frigid snow which squeaks a crunchy squeak.  Snow that never stays idle but blows in drifts and circles, as an arctic air blows wind.  Oh I love them all.


Yesterday's snow squalls were gentle, lilting, and ever so light.  While I was outside capturing the beauty I listened to the squirrels chip chip away in the woods as well as spied shadows in the distant trees of deer walking and waiting for me to leave.


I've mentioned before that when I grab my camera, Frodo dances and twirls in excitement knowing that we are going outside and we are exploring.  He stops when I stop.  I snap photos and he looks off in the distance watching and waiting for whatever is out in the woods.

  6. I love snow when I don't have to leave the neighborhood, to watch it soft and white in the yards, to walk and listen to the quiet crunch, crunch. But not on the days when I have to struggle to get up the hill and slide here and there - worrying about a different crunch sound :)

  7. Frodo looks so much like my puppies. Schnauzer eyes are always watchful, full of concern, care, and deep in concentration. Our temperatures are in the 50s. No snow in sight. Must say I'm a little envious.

  9. The snow looks so pretty! We've been having a gray, snowless winter in IL. We had an ice storm last week, but no snow. Enjoy!

    1. Ice storms are not fun, I prefer snow that is easy to plow and shovel!

  23. How lovely Karen. Our snow arrived on Tuesday evening here in England and continued all through Wednesday - just beautiful. I too love the snow and winter. Little Frodo looks like he is having a ball!

  24. What a lovely post! It's nice to get to experience the snow through your blog. We are in very short supply of it in my corner of BC. It's looking to be the warmest January on record.

  25. Yay for your lovely snow! I am of course so jealous.
    Ah, Frodo in that last pic is adorable. :)

  26. We woke up to snow this morning. It was beautiful. Frodo has such a sweet little face. You could frame that last photo. Enjoy your weekend.

  27. Love those Frodo photos! It's gray and rainy here, but I don't really mind because you don't have to shovel it. (I grew up in WI and got my fill of snow, I guess.)

  28. Frodo is a cutie! My Django has loads of fun in the snow as well. Me? I'd rather be inside and enjoying the beauty from there!
