Winter Week

After a week of good old-fashioned winter weather, things are looking a little better around here. We had 31.5″ of snow in the last 7 days. Finally, a week of winter, to help rescue us from another weak winter. I am thinking I will be up on the roof this week. #ILoveWinter.

This section of our driveway gets almost no sun, and usually thaws sometime in April. (C) 1inawesomewonder 2017.

Some Roads Must Remain Open

A little snow doesn’t stop us; at least, not for very long. Our 14 year-old was on the ice, Bruins game on the radio, the twins were playing in (as well as eating) the snow, and I was taking care of the fire. The stars were bright in the clear winter sky, and I still love winter.

This path leads to the fire pit. However, due to the snow, the fire pit is quite separated from the rink now.

The fire is going, despite starting it on three or more feet of snow.

The fire dropped a couple of feet into the snow bank, but it is warm and still burning.

Yes, the snow banks on the sides of the rink are between four and five feet deep. That’s not going to stop the hockey.

 

Cozy White

I venture out into another cold winter’s night,
Warmed by memories and this reality of cozy white.
