The Snows of 2011

I just finished a photo diary of the extraordinary snow falls we've had this winter. This preview shows about half of the pages.

Now that the snows are gone, I enjoy looking at the images they left behind. I certainly did not enjoy the reality of this winter, but your pictures almost made me forget that. Just lovely.

@Laraine: I, too, remember with a shudder the days we spent clearing the driveway of the last scrap of ice so that the oil truck would have a chance to reach our house--I didn't even have the energy to take a picture of us, which I now regret.

But my love of snow overrides all of this. I grew up snow-deprived in Germany with its rain-and-fog winters and was delighted that in all the places we lived at in the US--Buffalo(!), Pittsburgh, and Connecticut--we got snowed in just about every winter.
