White Out

Well, here I am at home again for a second snow day this week. I bet most of the school kids are thrilled – this makes for an extended February break. Me, not so much. I’d rather have gone in on a 2 hour delay. This puts our last day of school up to June 20th, and let me tell you it gets hot up on the second floor where I work.

So would you like a look around my snowy world? Maybe not since so many of us are buried in the white stuff. There’s a few of you out there who still like it (yes, I’m looking at you Michaela, lol!)

Here’s a few peeks at the places you are used to seeing here on my blog, all whited out:
waiting for the plow
This is the spot where my perennial garden lives in the summer time. How about this spring time view instead?

perrenial bed



patio furniture
Deck furniture. Here’s a much better use for the deck furniture in my opinion:
Dinner on my own



buried garden
My vegetable garden. **Sigh** Looks much better this way:
garden looking good



snowy rhododendron
The big rhododendron-azalea bush looks sad like this to me. Here’s a happier view:

Daydreaming of spring on this snowy day. Β At least the boys of summer are back at it – pitchers and catchers report to spring training tomorrow!



  1. All that white is quite beautiful – in December or January, for a little while. Now? It has to be getting very old out there in your part of the country. I much prefer the warmer spring and summer views! I shall do a spring dance for you – as soon as it stops raining here. Looks like that might be another week.

    • I hope your spring dance works soon Carol! Yes, all this snow is getting rather tiresome now.

  2. I still love the whited out place. Pure and peaceful….

    • There is certainly a peaceful feeling to the first snows of the season. By now, in mid-February, I’m starting to resent it.

  3. I love all the comparison pictures! Of course I love the summer-y ones best. You have a great photographic mind!

    • Thank you. Warmer weather can’t get here soon enough. For a short month, February is a long month!

  4. Sigh … I am fantasizing about spring gardening which is still months away … We can’t get our sensitive veggies in until mid May. C’mon spring !

    • I know the feeling Sybil. I never plant my veggies til the end of May. I don’t like having to keep an eye out for frost warnings that could happen before then.

  5. Hi! Found you on Kathy’s blog, and read that you’re in New England hoping to be a snow bird someday. We lived in Concord MA for 10 years until 3 years ago, then we flew to CA and never looked back. BUT I did find the NE snow absolutely beautiful. On Christmas Day. Maybe one other day, mid January. After that? hated it. I like the way you show the summer/winter pictures – hopefully helps you see the sun ahead of you…soon.

    • Hi there! Thanks very much for stopping by my blog. I’m a born-and-raised New Englander, having spent the majority of my life right here in the little western Massachusetts town where I grew up. I love spring, summer and fall here, but winter I could do without!

  6. I like the juxtaposition of snow and summer, Karma. The snow is so beautiful, but then again, so are the other times of year. Are YOU getting Cabin Fever?

    • Thank you Kathy. YES on the cabin fever! Doing my best to fight it!

  7. You’re looking at me?? Where?? *gasp* Are you peeping through my windows again?? You really shouldn’t do that πŸ˜‰
    Loving the summer/winter comparison pictures. You have to admit, though, that it DOES look pretty with all the fresh untouched snow πŸ™‚

    • LOL, Michaela. Thank you.
      As far as admitting its pretty, the cartoon from this blog post: https://karmardav.wordpress.com/2014/02/01/musings-on-a-new-month/ pretty much sums up how I feel about snow. Once December is over I’d be happy if another flake didn’t fly.

      • LOL I have a little cartoon that would work well for summer here…I’ll have to remember to post it when it’s hot outside πŸ˜‰

  8. Wow! That is some beautiful snow. But spring is beautiful, too, and this winter has been so odd that even I’m ready for spring. πŸ™‚

    • You are experiencing winter in a new place so I imagine that is making winter even odder (more odd?) for you. C’MON SPRING!!!
