Just a couple of pics of some of the snow we've gotten this winter!

Here's Mia, the german shepherd we adopted a year and a half ago.  She loves the snow, even when its so cold she runs as fast as she can to the edge of the yard and then races to get back inside because brrrr, can't be out too long!

The wind during this snowstorm was something else!  It plastered snow all over the side of the house.  When the kids and I read The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder, we hadn't quite understood about the wind.  Laura writes about it almost as though it is another character in the book and none of us had experienced a wind like that.  And then we moved here and yep, we understand it now!  It does almost seem alive at times and it has become a character in our lives ;)

While I may not appreciate having to walk or drive or shovel in all this snow and cold and winter, I do have to admit it is both pretty and awe inspiring in its ability to blanket the world in such a short amount of time.  The very first snowstorm we had in our new home back in 2015, we started with bare ground and by the time school was out, we had fourteen inches.....Thankfully this winter has not been quite as awe inspiring!
