Snow

I like a certain dose of snow – it works psychologically like a reset button for my hectic soul. Reason to slow down everything for a while, to retreat to the stove at home. Often I ask myself, which tricks for example Valery Titievsky may have to resist those long snowy weeks in his hometown Novosibirsk – enter his flickr galleries with a click on the picture below:

  2. Frizz, I was caught this afternoon in a white-out, up in the Colorado Rockies, and it was freezing++ and awesome in stunningly equal measures – as you so well say, a reset button for the hectic soul!

  7. snow works best in the rural where it does not impede day to day so much – Oh I forget, it’s only in the UK that we grind to a halt with a flurry

  8. It looks so cold in your neck of the woods, ft. Snow can look so pretty, but I prefer milder climes. :)

  9. We haven’t seen it yet, but I know it’s coming. Then, break out the hot cocoa. Looking forward to seeing snow white scenes from my windows. Berlin seems very hustle bustle. Beautiful pic.

  10. I too, enjoy the slowdown after a good snowstorm. Seems like we’re always in a rush. Perfect day for a cozy fireplaces, flannel loungwear and anything simmering hot on the stove. We have yet to get any snow this winter but I cannot wait!

  11. You’ve described the perfect amount of snow. I love a little; hate a lot. I like it best when I have nowhere to go and can look at it through my window.

  13. Thanks for the snow pictures. I also love it, everything quiets down and takes on the appearance of one of those old grainy silent movies. When I lived in Colorado we experienced dry snow every year, it squeaked when you walked through it.

  14. Well, it looks like you have your hands full but I am still sending you this Gargie Award because you have kept me so entertained and offered up so much that is new and interesting! He doesn’t bite and is housebroken…

  15. Lovely photos, Frizz. I love snowy places photos, but I have never been in a place with snow, and I don’t think I would dare because I’m a “friolenta” person (It seems that this word doesn’t have a word-to-word Spanish-English translation, but in Spanish it refers to a person that generally feels cold)
