Magical Winter Wonderland in Carlisle, PA. By: Maria Sapio, Realtor®

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams of Central PA RS334568

Yesterday the news was stacked with numerous cancellations around the Carlisle, PA area.  The roads were hazardous and sadly, numerous accidents were also being reported.

I spoke to some clients yesterday on the phone and although some were at work, one client shared that he and his family were sitting around the fireplace enjoying moments of laughter, conversation and cookies.  

Snow days can be viewed as a huge inconvenience or perhaps they can be viewed as a brief welcomed interruption of our frenzy to offer us a day to just contemplate, and enjoy the magnificence of the view.  I did go out to shovel twice yesterday and actually enjoyed the invigorating movement coupled with the brisk air. Last night, my fireplace was aglow as I snuggled on my couch and relaxed.

 

This morning I stepped out on my porch to savor the scenery and to snap a few photos of the magical winter wonderland that surrounds me before returning to the busyness of life!

It sure is pretty but I don't miss that weather. I had 50 years of it living in upstate N.Y.

For me that is best viewed from the inside but snow is a pristine and pure loook.

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty - perspective is everything...  :)  
I do confess that I'm not a huge fan of the cold but I do think viewing the snow from the comfort of indoors (beside a fireplace) is pretty close to perfection!

Good evening Maria Sapio,

You are right..perspective is everything! Love your take on snow days in your area, after all you might as well enjoy them..its not worth it to navigate the roads so enjoy some down time!

The magical winter wonderland is beautiful! Your photos are lovely. When roads and lives are involved, it pays to put safety first!

Be safe!

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI - I confess that the occassional 'disruption' caused by a snowfall can often be a welcomed day of working beside the fireplace!

Maria Sapio - Things do go better by the fireplace. Working in front of the warmth and glow of the logs inside a fireplace, perhaps with a cup of hot chocolate, causes one to think better and more creatively too. At least that's my experience. I think it would be a wonderful way to conduct business in the privacy of your own home while connecting with others by laptops or phone.

Hello Maria Sapio,  I love all the snow we had last week up at the cabin and the snow ball fights we had and building snowmans (2).  But driving back to Denver on Saturday was not good, what is a 3 1/2 drive took 11 hours.  Interestate 70 shut down for 4 hours.

Will Hamm  -Oh my, I cannot even fathom how disheartening it was to be in your car for 11 hours, but at least you had some wonderful memories to think upon from your time at the cabin!

Gabe Sanders - You're exactly right about that ... I do like the occasional snowfall as long as the sun comes out and it melts shortly thereafter.
