Say what you will about all the shoveling, slippery roads and walks, but you have to admit yesterday's snow was beautiful. There was no controversy over closing schools. The main roads weren't too bad, the snow not too heavy. It wasn't too cold and wasn't blowing. It was perfect snowman weather and quite a few have been added to the neighborhood population.
After taking the blog for a walk around the neighborhood this morning, I took the opportunity to visit Retzer Nature Center with my camera. The trails, including my favorite in Brown's Fen, were still covered in loose, deep snow and I wished I'd spent the $5.50 to rent snowshoes. Or at least wore decent snow boots, all I had were shortie boots. I got wet but not cold.
Today, Saturday, was a good day to be at Retzer. The landscape, beautiful. No hurries or worries. Listening instead of tuning out. Seeing instead of looking away. A good way to recharge after the two month commercial known as Christmas.
