Snow and IceTuesday, December 07, 2010
Growing up in Western New York State, winter is something you learn to deal with. Right now in WNY, the snow has been piling up for days and strong winds have turned the area into something along the lines of a snow globe gone wrong. Not being there to experience it has, surprisingly, gotten me a bit down. It's as if winter weather, contrary to my opening statement, isn't something you just learn to deal with, it's something that gets ingrained into your very being. It's as if my body is entirely aware that it's December and snowing in WNY and thus is craving hot cocoa, fur coats and wool sweaters.
So, to soothe my need for snow and quell my cravings for real winter weather, here are some great old fashioned photographs of snow and ice. Enjoy!
