Oh, the weather outside is frightful...

 Winter, 12/21, is almost here.  My snow days ended when I left Illinois.  But, I know there are a few bloggers out there, watching and waiting for a storm that blows and snows.

The following are from Pinterest, which is loaded with snow photos.

While Southern California watches big winds and prays there will be no wildfire, you will be looking out your window at night as snow falls. The first snow of the season is the most amazing.

In February, the excitement is missing.

  1. Those are beautiful pictures. I like snow for Christmas but as I have gotten older I am not so crazy about it otherwise.

    1. Once I was responsible for my own children, snow took on an entirely different challenge.

    1. When we want to see snow, we can drive 2 hours to the mountains. that is just fine.

      If I were 30 years younger, I think we could handle snow.

  3. I don't mind snow, it's ice that's treacherous.

  4. These photos are amazing. I'm glad I don't live there though. Aussie winters are cold enough for me.

  5. We have a photo of snow curling off the roof of Hick's creekside cabin. Not quite that much, though! About 15 years ago, we had an ice storm that knocked out the power for two weeks. Good thing my mom lived in town, and took us in! Except for Hick, who fired up a kerosene heater and slept at home, to thwart possible looters.

    1. Wow! Ice storms are the worst. We got married right before Christmas. the week before, ice storm took out electricity. We drove to our reception on an icy road.

  6. I adore snow (probably because it is extremely rare). We are rapidly approaching the hottest time of the year and I will be watching photos from your side of the world for cool relief. And hope that the snow falls safely.

    1. Summers vs. winters, I'd take winter any time. I can wear something warm, which is better than trying to stay cooler.

  7. Those are some incredible pictures.

    In recent years I had to travel in all kinds of weather so I was really beginning to dislike snow. This year I am working from home so I plan to enjoy it now.

    1. Watching the snowfall from the warm side of a window is relaxing, hypnotic.

  8. A few winters in NE Missouri taught us about snow, BUT we do love the pictures. HOWEVER I CANNOT imagine 6' of snow on a roof and it not collapse, but I know where it happens they build for that.
    Love the pictures, they are amazing!

  9. Wow. We had snow once that came and settled and stayed a bit, but even that was nothing like these photos. Thank heaven, we swamp creatures are not made for snow.

    1. Oh, yes, thankfully! My husband grew up in Buffalo, and I grew up in midwest Illinois. We knew snow well then.

  10. We have snow now, nut much, but I am sure we will get more. It is simply part of where we live. If I had a choice, snow or wildfires, snow would win every time.

    1. Same here. We have had too many wildfires here in California.

  11. We get snow here, but I hope none as big and dramatic as the ones in these photos!
