Some people around here really bemoan winter. And I have to admit that I sometimes do as well. When I first moved to the frozen tundra of Minnesota I was all agog at the beauty and serenity that winter can produce. But now that I’ve been here over 20 years I am finally starting to feel what many Minnesotans express each winter, having to deal with moving the snow, driving in the snow and the challenges that come with all of that. But every so often a snowfall comes along that produces such loveliness like the one yesterday.
It was a bit foggy this morning and all the trees were covered in the snow that fell yesterday. I was out running errands and decided to stop along the way and snap some photos to share here as it was so beautiful. I stopped at the church where we vote and a woman was driving into the lot as I was snapping a photo. When she saw what I was doing, she smiled broadly. Aha! Another person who appreciates the beauty of fresh, white snow. Then I went to the park and snapped a few more there. I hope you enjoy these few photos of the beauty that winter can be if you just stop to notice.
