A light beautiful snow is falling now...

Right in the gloaming made more so because of the heavy sky.

There is no wind, not a hint of breeze, just snow gently fluttering about, accumulating.

All the trees are bare from the back of the house and all the pine trees in the front are loaded down with accumulated snowfall.

There is just a hint of the deer tracks, results from the in between houses yard path that is one stand of wood to another.

It's times like these that I love, sitting in my home, with the wall of windows the only thing that separates me from the elements.

I am lucky to be on this side of the cold winter snap we are in.

Peace, calm and reflection on this midwestern winter night.

2. I cracked the sliding door open so kitty can sniff the breeze and appreciate being an indoor cat

In warmer weather, the devil cat tries to sneak through

5. A wall of windows!?


Good God man... put up some bars on those things! Electrify them! Stock up on dried food and ammunition!

Don't you know that, at any minute, someone could come busting right through those windows to deprive you of your Constitutional rights!

9. Remembrances so sweet

This reminds me when we lived outside Jackson Hole with the Tetons in our picture window. Thank you so much for the time travel.

Gentle snowfall in the countryside. Yes.

13. Sounds like home. Out back the evergreens hang almost straight down with the weight

of snow and out front the deciduous trees have a couple inches of snow on every twig. No wind and looks like fairyland. Absolutely beautiful!

My son went to Brazil and got badly burned yesterday...even with #70 sunscreen and a hat. The temperature in Rio is 99 degrees. Record breaking heat wave! Thank you...but I'll take the SNOW! I have a feeling he'll be glad to get home and do some shoveling.

HAPPY NEW YEAR
