Winter Wonderland

Maybe it’s because I spent chunks of my formative years in snowy cold places like Montreal and Winnipeg, but I love days like today.

Sure, it’s cold out there. But it’s sunny and there’s fluffy powdery snow and everything’s sparkling and fresh.

Wish I had time to go for a walk. (Must make time to go for a walk.)

Photo is of me with friends Scott and Joy during a very unexpected snowstorm in NYC a few years ago. We weren’t exactly dressed for it. No boots. Pretty sure I bought that scarf from some guy on the street. Blue raincoat was borrowed from my friend Elaine, because the forecast called for rain…

    See, London had it’s freak snow dump back in December. I love the snow days too, when I don’t have to drag two toddlers through the snow to my moms so I can get to work. I was hoping we’d have a day off, but alas nice boss is on holidays and mean boss made us work.

    Love the picture! NYC is on my list to see.

    Even though I’ve lived in sunny climes most of my life, I’ve also experienced life in colder climes. I can appreciate variety in weather and if it’s not warm and sunny, it shouldn’t be described as a “bad” day. It all has its place. Enjoy your snow!

    I miss snow like that. We’ve had the cold weather and a bit of snow, but it’s been mostly rain and ice. :(

    Give me snow anyday over that.

    I only like snow if I can look at it through a window, while I’m inside and warm.

    Snow does fall in parts of NZ, but not where we are – we left UK because of cold weather. If at all possible I never want to be stuck on an icy road again!

    I love snow, if I don’t have to drive to work in it, and it’s not so cold, I can’t take the wee one out in it.
    Otherwise, yuck!!

    I love snow when I don’t have to drive in it.
