Hmmm…that’s assuming you like snow, which I do. Alternative post titles I considered: ” Too Much Is Not Enough” (in favor of snow), “Too Much of a Good Thing?” (neutral), “Enough, Already!” (against), and simply, as my aunt used to say, “BASTA!” (Enough! in Italian).
Although I may be running out of things to say about snow, I can never take enough pictures of it. Try as I might, I rarely get a shot that captures the feeling I get from seeing the snowy landscape. Everything new, everything from a different perspective. It forces us to break away from the routine, even if it’s because we have to shovel. It’s a chance to delight in a snow day, play outside or cozy up inside, and think about how the forces of Nature can still exert some control over what we do. I love that! Whether it’s a blizzard, a mighty thunderstorm, or a heatwave, I want to enjoy it, immerse myself in it, and remember that I’m a part of something bigger.
Last spring during the floods, I sent photos to relatives out of state. One wrote me back, saying “that’s interesting, but I don’t know what it looked like before”. So here, for the sake of compare and contrast, are some pictures to put things in perspective.
