ADJUSTING TO A
WINTER WITHOUT SNOW

Our weather this winter
has been noticeably warmer,
and without the snow of past years.

Noticeable changes in our winter lives:

o No sledding or toboggans down neighborhood hills.

o No helping children build snowmen in the yard.

o No dressing up for long walks in snow covered fields.

o No staying home from school or work due to snow warnings.

o No skis or snow boards strapped atop cars . . .

UNLESS, OF COURSE

We make our own snow!

A short drive, west of St. Louis,
to Hidden Valley Ski Lodge,
where they cover their slopes with snow.
(Man-made snow is better than none.)

I suppose this will do
until we get the real thing!

  1. Preciosas imágenes Rick, un buen día en la nieve es genial. Me gusta el detalle del cañón fabricando nieve artificial. Un abrazo amigo

  3. Aaaawww! These are such tender photos of children. I especially like the one with the father and child and of course that window display makes me wish I am a kid again. Have a great day, Rick.

  4. This is such a genoius thaught- to make your own snow, but it's also sad that Mother Nature is on strike this year....(By the way, your composition skill is flawless :) )

  6. yes... we are waiting for snow here too... We want to go sledge riding... like last year, almost every day, because we had so much snow... But we have no more hope for this winter. Feels like spring is coming. Too warm. Much too warm.

  7. All the slopes here in NY are covered with man-made snow also.
    It has indeed been a very unusual winter.
