Winter Wonderland… At Night

Nothing is better than a delayed winter… nothing except the 3rd significant snowfall of the season being a large flake, no wind, Christmas spirit wonderland.

I needed to get some shopping done earlier in the evening, and surprisingly it WASN’T busy in the stores. But I did hear my first Christmas Carol of the season, and it put a smile on my face.

Later, as I was driving and watching the snow fall, I decided I wasn’t ready to go home just yet, so I headed for the park downtown, took my camera and took some night time snowfall shots.

Other than the snowy vortex of doom while highway driving at night in the winter months, along with slippery sidewalks and roads, and the wind that causes chills that make old bones rattle, there is so much to smile about when the snow flies.

I love snow, especially at night. Everything sparkles, and once you get cold, you head inside for some mint hot chocolate, crisp apple cider, and warm hugs.
