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.

A Snowy Day in Eagle Creek Park

I awoke this past Wednesday to a winter wonderland outside my window.  I was almost late to school due to 1.) clearing the snow off my car (it always takes longer than I anticipate) and 2.) taking pictures of the snow covered trees in my apartment parking lot.  After work, my sister-in-law called me after driving through the local Eagle Creek Park to let me know that it was breathtaking.  I was so glad that I had brought my camera along that day!  I headed over her way and we jumped in the car to explore.  I think the photos speak for themselves.  Enjoy!

Job 37:5-7 (ESV)

God thunders wondrously with his voice;
he does great things that we cannot comprehend.
For to the snow he says, ‘Fall on the earth,’
likewise to the downpour, his mighty downpour.
He seals up the hand of every man,
that all men whom he made may know it.
