To Many A Winter Wonderland

This view out my brother's home in Pittsburgh is truly a winter wonderland.  We grew up in upstate N.Y. with a similar view and he rejoices in continuing the tradition of shoveling snow and romping in the snow with his family and dog "Rocky".  He has a love affair with skiing!
Vesta M. Kelly once said:
"Snowflakes are one of nature's most fragile things, but look what they can do when they stick together!"

I have a lot of kin in Pittsburgh. It's a great place, even better when it snows!

Hi Craig,

My brother snapped this picture..I think to remind me of what I'm missing! Actually we have fond memories of making snowman, angels, forts, skating on a pond....he would never give those activities up and has raised his children to love those activities as he does!

Hi Toula,

It really is!

By the way that big bowl of soup you made for me and Geno sure hits the spot as we are watching the temperatures plunge in the 20's here in Austin!!!

Hi Lou,

I loved it growing up..there was something magical about the falling flakes but I've been deep in the heart of Texas now for too long!

Hi Mary,

This is nothing new for you but after being away from it for so long I have to admit it brings back wonderful memories!

Hi Debi,

There is something magical about a cover of snow, the stillness and quietness after a snowfall.

Dorie, we had a little of the white stuff yesterday. Yes, there is something magical about it. Too bad that there was not enough to make a snowman though...

Beautiful winter picture!  I bet it looks a bit different in Austin. 

Enjoy your weekend.

Hi Michael,

I use to make the best snowman! We had coal for the eyes and mouth, twigs for the arms, a carrot for the nose and always found a hat, scarf and boots!! We could stay out all day and be soaked and cold but when your young you don't care!
