the blizzard of 2015

as in Alaska weather

hit us hard

we were snowed in Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday

Roads closed, schools cancelled, government and town offices closed

Honestly, I am still a bit fragmented from all of it

I can't seem to get my thoughts together

Yesterday afternoon, I went out snowshoeing

through the path in the wood

it was bright and beautiful

and still and serene

one could imagine they were the only person on earth

when the wood looks like that


this morning they are telling us that there is more snow on the way

but only a few inches

just enough to cover everything up again


We will have the boys with us this weekend

it has been quite a while since they've been here

we will take them out snowshoeing


  1. A peaceful calm after the storm! Pretty.

  2. Your winter wonderland photo is stark and stunning. I can imagine your quite snowy walk. Lovely, but I can also see how you'll be ready for a bit less winter.
