As I have said before, moving to a new place engenders the same discovery process as travel. While my neighbors complain about the winter weather, I am staying pretty positive. Most of the big storms veered south or north leaving us with little snow. Washington, DC has had more snow this winter than Hartford, CT. The snow that has fallen has made for an enjoyable workout shoveling the walkways and driveway. Temperatures have been unseasonably high. It’s cold, but not so cold that I have to find something warmer than my fleece.
Before the noise and stench of snowblowers begin, I love the fresh blanket of snow. It has been so long since I have lived in a place with snowfall that I notice the shape of the snowflakes and how it sticks to otherwise bare trees. I laugh at the squirrel tracks in the snow crossing rooftops and circling trees.
What I notice most is how similar it looks to other seasons; the color pallet has just changed. In October I updated you on the bold colors of the New England autumn attracting Leaf Peepers from around the world. Here are some of those same views in the middle of a winter storm.
I am participating in DeliciousBaby’s super cool Photo Fridays, where everyone is invited to link to a travel photo. Please click here to see more of this week’s photos & stories.
