  1. We got a little more than you, there’s about 3-4 feet here. We’re supposed to get more overnight tonight. 😦

  2. I don’t like North American winters, I don’t like snow, I don’t like looking at it, I don’t like being in it. It makes me so miserable. Reason: I was born in the Southern Hemisphere in a warm climate. I just don’t cope well with winter, that’s why I’m hiding out in Arizona waiting for Old Man Winter to vacate!

    • Hi Jennifer, don’t take this personally, but I come to this page with the opposite perspective. πŸ™‚

      I love North American winters, I love snow, I love love love looking at it, I enjoy being in it and even shoveling it, and most of all I thrive on quiet, crisp walks, especially in the late afternoon or early morning, and listening to the little birds flitting around in the silent trees.
      Reason: I was born in New York State, and grew up in New York State, and developed many skills around how to enjoy cold weather and the beauty of fresh snow. And now I live in a warm climate in the Southern Hemisphere, and barely tolerate the hot summer days, for days on end, with hot dry winds that blow fire embers around in rural, grassy or treed areas, and I can’t figure out the growing patterns to get a decent garden happening. So why do I live here?–mostly because it’s hubby’s homeland, but there are many other advantages which I have to constantly remind myself of.

      Terri, thank you for posting these gorgeous snowy pics, for folks like me, even though it looks far from being a blizzard. Brings back pleasant memories. πŸ™‚

  3. Basil takes good photos. It’s fun to see what the aftermath of the storm looks like in other areas. We got about 6″, not a big deal. But it was so pleasantly quiet with no cars on our street that I kind of wish it would continue. We had Will and Charlie here, so it wasn’t totally quiet inside!
