Winter Wonderland

I woke up yesterday morning to another twenty-four hours of snow and bleakness.  On the verge of the next deep freeze, I decided I could either wallow in a jar of Nutella or find something to redeem the day.

I decided on pictures.  That makes perfect sense doesn’t it?  I’m not a photographer and I don’t have a fancy camera, but I do have the driving force of snow behind me.  I grabbed my cell phone and an extra pair of socks and left on a mission – Winter Wonderland.

Join me, won’t you?

Pictures come at quite the high price.  I never realized how dangerous snapping a photo could be, but I managed to step off the road and fall right into a ditch.

A snowy sink hole swallowed me.  Only a tuft of hair and one hot pink boot remained visible.  If I didn’t pull myself up and out of that ditch, I would have been drifted in within five minutes.

That’s how people get lost in a winter wonderland.  Take snapshots with caution.

    Oh, wow. Very cold. We have had pretty mild weather here- lots of clouds but nothing below freezing and certainly no snow. Way less rain then usual. Guess that means we are in for it this summer. Glad you saved your life: )

    It was a beautiful day here, but so cold you could feel your nose hairs shrivel up. Today it is even colder! I think I will eschew the walk to get photos, but I did enjoy yours very much. There is something so peaceful about snow–if you’re not trying to go anywhere it in.

    Love your shots! I wish I had taken one of the town near me a few weeks ago, when the wreaths on the lamp posts and everything else glittered with white and snow, it was a post card from 100 years ago (except the Prius) I have been baking a lot since I hate cold and unfortunately live in Jersey. Drawback – I also eat the cookies…. Keep ‘em coming – your posts brighten these cloudy snowy days!
