With a subject like this it needs to be said right outta the box - I hate winter. Always have probably always will. I understand all the dynamics and have much experience with this time of year. Except for this last winter the previous 20 were spent in da boat area. Snow country! That's what I think of when winter is brought up. The snows I have seen I tell you.
When I think of winter I think of snow. I went and grabbed a few pictures all with snow in them of various degrees of depth. Some are pictures of pictures and others have an explanation attached.
Bottom line- if you live in a place where you can see snow but it's green where you are at it will be more chilly than more warm. Even though I spent last winter where there was not as much snow and it was much warmer it was still winter. This winter the plan if it is one is to spend it here.
The last thing is I have fudged and included a video at the end of one of the things that is enjoyable for me in the winter. The title of the post for this was " Six O Today Confused and Going Around In Circles".
Click on the pictures to take a real good look.
This was from my window with my camera but I was laying around and didn't take it. These light conditions are not that common. This is a major icon of Steamboat Springs. It is called Sleeping Giant. Head is on the left knees on the right.
Winter - when Florida monkeys slam into you at 6:30 in the morning. He was trying to make a turn here. There was ample time to avoid.
Pay attention kiddies - this is is how ya drive on da snow!
