SNOW STORM!!! I'm feeling my minority status when it comes to loving snow! Sure, I don't like driving in it, or the way a winter storm rearranges your dance card. But I will always go back to that feeling when I was a kid...snow days, sledding, skating, river walking, snow mobiling....The snow draped on the evergreens is an unmatched beauty.

Shelter in place while I lay down a layer of white, blow it all around and work magic in the eco- system. Feel free to play in it, dig in it, move it around and then tomorrow you can resume your regularly scheduled life activities.As i watch the snow accumulate here in Wisconsin, I found some writings from the early Big Creek settlers this morning, and it never ceases to amaze me, their hardiness.

But then it will finally overtake the sun's ability to melt it and the peaceful blanket of white will envelope her for her winter hibernation. May the aviators and locals keep an eye on her til she awakens again in spring! 💖( Thank you, Carrie Ellie, for taking the hike I would if I were there to get this spectacular photo!) ...
