From my last post of photos, you would think we were living in a winter wonderland. However, the temperatures have turned fairly warm and our snow is all but gone. I always love a White Christmas, so here are some photos I’ve taken in past years of some of our snows. Wisconsin is known for very cold temperatures and a lot of snow. Last winter was no exception; in the matter of a day or so, we got nearly two feet in an all-out blizzard. It slowed us all down some, but it was so beautiful! It was the most dramatic winter storm I have witnessed. As you can see, it really buried the old truck, Simon’s doghouse, and everything else!
Poor Simon didn’t get back into his doghouse for a long time! The night of this storm, he actually slept in the house, which he never gets to do.
This is the road near home, and what appears to be a little toy is a great big truck!
There was a lot of wind during this storm, and once the sun started to shine again, the snow was dazzling in its mysterious shapes and shadows. It reminded me of photos of the ocean floor where the sand is carved into delicate ridges. This is the roof of one of the sheds.
Snow on the ground in the late afternoon sun.
A very similar scene just at sunset.
Two days after our storm, the lighting changed entirely. It was somewhat overcast, and suddenly, the world was a mysterious gray, with breathtaking clouds hanging over us. In my opinion, this was equally beautiful, because it created such a unique atmosphere. The photos are dark, so feel free to click on them to view them larger.
And since Christmas is drawing near, here’s a photo of last year’s decor.
I hope you enjoyed the snow. 🙂
