Today I've found a wonderful picture in my "winter wonderland" file on on the desktop. This picture was taken in December 2008 in Upstate NewYork. We've had that freezing nights where all the trees got covered by ice.
That's right guys, its pure ice- no snow!
An experience I've never had before, cause where I live there is neither that much ice nor tons of snow for long.We've had more than 5 days without any power and 2 babies in the house, who had to have it cosy and warm. A fun trip almost down to the City had to happen to get a generator to at least get warm water in the house. It was so amazing to look out of the house into an incredible ice landscape...
Guess what?! We finally have the first snow falling for this year. I kinda gave up the hope of seeing this beautiful white flakes before christmas, but noo... there it is.
I was visiting my grandpa in the hospital when I've recognized it. A beautiful view from the uppest level all over the city and little villages around.
Makes me feel very calm and thoughtful somehow.
But in a good way I suppose.
