Wolf winter

So this year is a real “wolf winter” with lots of snow and cold. Way overdue if you ask me. The only thing that makes six months of darkness worth it is the glitter of snow and days like this, when an icy breath rises from the stream and hovers in the sunlight.

But a winter like this also brings specific challenges. Snow weighs a lot, so today we had to remove some of it from the balcony so it wouldn’t break!

We borrowed this electric thingumajig from a friend to deal with the worst of it, but I also used a big bucket meant for making wine. Use what you’ve got!

And afterwards, make sure you hang your clothes up to dry!

    hi ingela, really great so much snow! beautiful images, and I work removing the snow from the balcony, equally surprising the layer of snow that is observed on the roofs of houses, and think that here I burn heat, ha ha ha …

    Have fun with your husband, and take care of the cold, the flu does not forgive, ha ha ha …

    a warm hug from a distance, fernando.

      Thank you Fernando. 🙂 Yeah, this planet really is a diverse place! From areas with permafrost to constantly tropical weather.
