This year has proven that I really wouldn’t do well living in an area that didn’t get any snow. Other than the one extremely odd pre-Halloween snow, we have missed every single snow producing system that has made it way by. We haven’t even had a flurry.
A friend in NY posted a photo on FB of the massive amounts they’ve gotten and how much work it was taking to just get her front walk cleared in an attempt to dig out her car. The snow was up nearly to the top of the wheels. She was absolutely miserable and I felt horrible for her, but I was also a little jealous that we haven’t seen any.
We haven’t even had any rain.
While I really don’t wish for snow that would bring all kinds of negatives like power outages and dangerous roads, I do really wish we’d get snow. It is the only thing that makes the cold tolerable.

Sadly, the pretty snow was bad enough to force the studio to cancel BG’s performance yesterday, something they almost never do because of how difficult (really impossible) it is to reschedule. They will do most of it during the first class period back after the new year, but it won’t be the full thing as they don’t do pointe, just ballet.
I was sad but also really glad because all the roads in the area were a horrible mess and I really didn’t want to attempt to get out in that disaster. Instead, I froze my butt off to go take some pictures as the conditions were perfect for it. Or, mostly perfect. I would have stayed out longer, but the snow was really coming down and it was getting impossible to keep my camera dry, so I wasn’t out too long. Long enough to get a few good shots. I love snow covered landscape shots, but I can rarely ever seem to really capture what I see.
Yes, this is one from way earlier in the year, but I thought maybe a snow and ice picture would make me feel cooler instead of melting.
I have a whole list of projects I want/need to work on. A couple of them have legitimate reasons why I haven’t started on them. Others, I’m just kind of procrastinating on. I feel like I don’t want to start anything new until my book is completely done, cover and all, and finally released into the wild. I know I still have at least a couple of weeks before that happens, so I have the time to work on something else, I just don’t really want to start yet.

We finally got some snow. Lots of it. It is the perfect kind of snow to get out in and photograph, so that is exactly what BG and I did. It wasn’t too cold, either which made it really nice. I got some amazing shots and I’m still going through most of them, but this is one of my favorites. Our hike led us to discover this beautiful little pond just a couple minutes from us that we didn’t know anything about. It is probably going to be one of my favorite new spots to photograph.
