Winter Wonderlands

I’m sure most of you have had your fill of snow pictures over the last couple days, but I had to find something productive to do with my snow day home from teaching… so here’s my blog post of snow pictures!  🙂  Since Thanksgiving, I’ve had my share of snowy days in both Pennsylvania and Indiana.  Yesterday was a one-of-a-kind day.  Over 11 inches fell in one day here in Indianapolis before the arctic chill set in.  I took a walk over near the White River to enjoy the tree-lined snowy roads and get some photos.  It felt so strange to be all alone on these city streets.  I couldn’t help but marvel at how beautiful it all was.  God made a lot of beauty in this world.  I enjoyed the beauty yesterday and today I’m enjoying (and feeling very grateful for) the invention of electricity and heat to keep me warm inside in this -9 degree weather!  In stark contrast to my last blog post, I give you the recent winter wonderlands I’ve experienced:

Back in Indianapolis- The infamous snow of January 5.  Here is a  view from my patio in the midst of it all.

The White River- I have to say it wasn't quite as picturesque as I'd imagined, but beautiful to see, nonetheless.

I obviously couldn't get enough of these tree-lined roads.  They're one of my favorite things.
