a meme with a home-grown theme
Some people have seen a bit of snow falling and are already in a panic. Some people have a lot of snow falling today and have good reason to panic. I'm not either of those.
I know I am not looking forward to driving in it, and am a bit nervous because I have appointments in Medicine Hat this week and next, when Dick won't be available to take me.
Not only do I not like driving in it, but our much beloved Lindy doesn't have the sense to get in out of the snow. If I'm not home, she'll be in the yard, with her one-year-old but-never-been-used fully insulated dog house right there. She will not go into it. Rain, snow, or burning sun, she won't go into it. What a dog she is!
Wait...that's not what this post is about. This is about snow as a spectator sport. Watching it fall is so soothing, so meditative. Looking out a window at a blanket of snow makes us feel warm and comfy inside. And photographing it is fun!
These pictures were taken on Boxing Day last year (December 26, 2009, for those of you who don't know Boxing Day). It was a perfect snowfall, on a perfect day, in my sometimes perfect world.
