Tina’s challenged us to show “cold” this week. I’ve lived in the Midwest my entire life except for some years in Colorado, so I’m not only used to the cold, but I really enjoy winter. As we’re moving to Arizona next spring, I plan to enjoy this last winter to the max.

However, we humans aren’t on the front line when it comes to the cold.

Unfortunately, we haven’t had much snow since November when I took a wonderful walk in the gorgeous snow. Here’s another photo from that walk. Think you’re seeing double? Don’t worry, you are. There’s a gate that’s pulled back in the mornings at sunrise, although you can easily get around it if you like. (Don’t ask me how I know that!) I love the way the snow fills in the openings in the fence, creating a sort of black and white abstract.

I know today is Thursday and the doors I was going to feature are in my folder, but I just can’t do it.  They should have been done last night, but life has gotten too busy at the moment and when I realized this morning that I hadn’t gotten them into a post and that I don’t have time in the next few days to respond to comments or visit all the posts I want to see, I decided enough is enough.  Life has to be lived and work obligations met and especially in this season, I don’t want to be any more overwhelmed than need be.

So I’m taking a few days off, but leaving you with this shot from my Monday walk in the park.  It’s a sort of “light at the end of the tunnel” photo, in a place you’ve seen at least several times on the blog before, once with fog at the end, once with a deer and rabbit silhouetted halfway down.  Enjoy the beauty and the symbolism.  Take time to enjoy the season and I’ll see you soon.  Feel free to chat, as I’ll have a bit of time here and there to check and I’ll miss that.

Monday we had what was being called a blizzard here, but seemed more like a snowstorm to someone who lived for over 30 years in Cleveland’s snow belt. No matter what you call it, it left us with about 6-7″ over that heavy snow that looks beautiful but breaks branches and brings down power line. It brought beauty to the park.  I spent 2 1/2 hours wandering and wallowing in both snow and beauty.
