First snow of Winter 2015

We made it all the the way to the end of December, 2015, before we got our first real winter's snow. You hear that right: not our biggest snow... our first snow! And it was a big one. From about 3pm on a Monday afternoon until about 2am the next day the majority of the 13 inches of snow fell where I live in Wisconsin and now the world is a lot bluer at night and brighter during the day.

On my day off today I decided to take a few photos to show what 13 inches of snow looks like. Back when I lived on the East Coast this would have been all over the news, with the press calling it "The impending Snow-magedon!" or "The storm of 2015!" In the midwest we just call this "winter."

I am not a big fan of feeling cold, or shoveling snow, but I have to admit, it can be very pretty, and it gives me an excuse put the wrangler in four-wheel-drive when I am out (so thankful for 4WD) and to fire up the silly fake fireplace when I am home.

Have a look.
