Shot through my dining room window on Wednesday morning. I seriously could not summon the will to go out of doors to capture any more magical snow moments. I am officially tapping out of the Winter Wonderland League of Photographers.

After two days of heavy rains, we’d been down to soggy grass, but Mother Nature staged a full-on midnight percussion concert on Tuesday night, showcasing her newest composition: Thundersnow!  Yipes!  It was incredibly loud, shaking the house and waking everyone.  Sunrise on Wednesday revealed a return to a thick cover of snow.

(For most of us, “Drum roll, please” is just an expression. Mother Nature is apparently a literalist.)

I’ve noticed that many members of the Clean Driveway Club on my road have just refused to shovel for this last storm, driving right through the mess and trusting that it will–eventually–melt for good.

As of late in the day Thursday, it hasn’t.

    Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! This just about says it all.

  2. It’s been a long time, but your comments remind me how little I miss the dark side of snow.

    Lovely photos… and I don’t blame you for not going out.

    I find that I am a slacker about photos during the winter — especially during the cold and the snow. Yes, it’s pretty. Yes, I could probably get some nice photos. I just don’t want to be out in it. I’m a guy who like to be comfortable — and warm, which could be part of why, living in a state like Colorado, I never took up skiing — too cold! 🙂

    • Thanks, John…and it snowed again last night. I’ve actually embraced winter as I’ve gotten older and accepted that I have to wear some pretty dorky-looking clothes to stay warm. I don’t ski, either, but snowshoes are great fun if walking is in your skill set. However, this extended-play version of winter is breaking my spirit.
