Snow!

Unless you are an avid skier or a youngster hoping for a day off of school, SNOW is a four-letter word!  But sometimes there is no denying the beauty of the white stuff.  Last night we had a light snowfall.  Since the temperature was just below freezing, it was a wet snow... the kind that sticks to every branch and twig... the kind that creates a winter wonderland.

I took Alejandro on a drive to admire it all... sometimes we even got out of the car and walked around.  Here are a few pictures from the park in my hometown of Olmsted Falls, from the neighboring city of Berea, and from the Rocky River Reservation of the Cleveland Metroparks.







In a few days this will all be gone.  By Friday the temperature is supposed to rise to an unseasonable 50 degrees.

    Where people don't seem to think that living in snow would be awful. Ha!

    1. Alejandro is dressing warmly and seems to be doing fine with the cold. At one point yesterday, I asked him whether he wanted to continue our drive through the park or return home, and he said "drive on". He also took a lot of pictures. So I guess he was impressed with the beauty of the snowfall. It was truly one of those very pretty snows that look like something from a Christmas card.
      Glad that you are enjoying nice weather down there. Tell the weather gods to continue through April when I return.

    1. Hi Barbara! Hope you are feeling better!
      Alejandro was sick for the first couple days up here, but he is fine and enjoying the novelty of snow. (He hasn't said that he would never want to live in Ohio!)
