Here Comes Winter
What you see in the pictures is from early Saturday morning when the snow first began. I took these when I took my dog Isabella out for a walk to see how she'd take to the snow. She liked it just fine, but she didn't seem to care for the deep stuff that has built up since then. She hops over any deep parts she finds. She did that with the fallen leaves too.
I have to say that the snow covering everything is just beautiful here, but I'm still not sure how well prepared I am for winter. I don't even have a snow shovel because I forgot to buy one. I'm going to have to wait for a clear day when the roads are better to run out and get one to clear a few pathways around here.
If you don't want to have to go searching for nature parks in the snow you might want to try Cancun holidays instead. One thing you'll never find in Cancun is snow. What you'll find is warm beaches and so many activities that give you one of the best alternatives to the winter cold.
I like my nature parks, but it can be difficult to go through some of the bigger ones in the middle of winter. I was just told that this first snowfall might melt before we get another one. that might make things seem like a holiday with just that. For now, the snow is still coming down as strong as I've ever seen.
I'm not too prepared for that this year either. It's not that I don't want to go outside so often. It's that I haven't had enough time to get enough wood for the winter. I'm glad my dad made sure there was a backup system to keep things warm around here. So I won't have to go outside quite as often later, but heat will become a little more expensive. The cheapskate in me is screaming out.
The one thing that won't change is that I'll still be bringing you some wonderful winter pictures and my long winded, but very fun, words. I've actually had a lot of fun today out in the snow with the dog. And now I'm running out of words to say, so I think I'll say goodbye for today.
