For months now I have been admiring snow pics of you who live in more Northern regions. Today it is my turn, because we went for a day to Big Bear Lake and we took a stroll at 9000 feet. It was a "warm day" and snow was melting.
Love to take snow pics, but glad I don't have to deal with frozen water pipes when living in snow ( I still remember what drama that can cause!), but how interesting a pine cone becomes when it's highlighted by the snow!
And yes, I remember how inconvenient it is that even when you have hauled supplies up the mountain for a month, and you forgot something. You first need to dig yourself out of the snow before you can drive away with your car! Even worse, when you come to town you discover that the stores are closed!
But how a humdrum path transforms into a romantic walk when nature goes into hibernation and water, wind, and the sound of feet walking become the only sound heard
Life slows down...cleaning ones boots take precedence over hurrying to another place!
What I really like is kids and adults playing everywhere in the snow.
Some of you who have been reading my blog for a while know I'm particularly fond of hats, but here it's an absolute necessity! This one I knitted before I got married, so it's several decades old and it went with me around the globe. Hubby caught me here goofing off!
And a forgotten chair catches one's attention. It probably stands on someone's property, but the snow has a way of blurring commonly recognized boundaries.

But the lake at Big Bear takes the prize in beauty in winter time.
