A curve in the Highway near my home

This was taken in February 2006. The variations in winter is not snow or no snow but how early it arrives and whether we get small, gentle snowfalls or a series of harsh blizzards. The other factor is the number of truly cold days, those dropping to the nasty zone of -28 degrees Celsius. Last year 2011-12 was a very mild winter in both of those sensations. This year was colder and the snow fall not momumentally or blitzkrieg-like, just steady and now Spring seems to be shy about tunring up in all its glory. On one plus side of the weather ledger we had only a hint of freezing rain on two days. So at least we could safely drive our cars while bundled up in our winter clothes and boots. It will be as it always is a thrill to peel down to wearing just shorts and shirts comfortably out of doors. I don’t think I could live in a place without four seasons.
