Snow in January— so beautiful!

 It snowed the other day -- the first significant snowfall in Toronto this
 month. As Canadians living in a northern climate we know this isn’t
normal. It’s been wonderful being able to walk around without worrying
 about slipping on ice. But the snow matters, and it looks magical.

Tonight I’m showing pictures from other winters. I’m well aware
that we have two months left of winter, and could easily be hit with heavy
snowstorms between now and April. Still I love the way snow lights up the
day, and makes the night brighter.

On a sunny day like today the light is glorious. I stood outside on our sun
filled back porch, and stared at the clouds, ringed in brilliant light for a minute.
It's very cold -- so I couldn't stay longer.  Wow -- it is beautiful.

Snow, snow and more snow
The winter of 2008
That's me on the snowbank in
front of our house.  The house is
much prettier now (white with red
shutters and a red front door), and
I don't know what happened
to that pretty coat.

Happy creating. Stay healthy and stay safe.
