Yesterday we were promised snow, and lots of it. Because I am short sighted and forgetful, when 7 pm passed and the snow failed to arrive I went out for dinner… in heels. Cue the snow! By the time I got home (thank goodness for the mobile, heated, oasis-on-wheels known as cars) it was a world transformed.
I was hoping to get up just before dawn and shoot the blue hour but when I woke up the snow was still piling on, so I waited until later this morning to go a-shootin’ with my camera. What a treat! I hope very much that this lovely weather, now that it has finally arrived, is here to stay for at least 2 months.
Best moment of the day: finding a giant patch of untouched snow, perfect for a snow-angel (read: snow-overweight-butterfly). I couldn’t resist. Afterwards I just lay there in the snow for a good 5 minutes, staring at the sky and thinking ‘damn, this is awesome’. If you haven’t made one of these since childhood I highly recommend it.
Another delightful discovery is that the lake is finally starting to freeze over. It’s been 2 winters since that happened, and I miss it.
I love the way snow piles up on every little surface…
Nothing inspires me to knit quite like this kind of weather :)
