Our front yard during our beautiful snowfall a few weeks ago. Excitement filled our hearts as we watched the snow accumulate to a depth where we could grab our snow shoes and head out. We located a wonderful trail only minutes from home where we spent the afternoon snowshoeing in the silent beauty. Why does hard exercise feel so much better when it's done in Nature's playground? Later, over a cup of chocolate we planned our upcoming return to this special area as our spirits soared.
Within days the Chinook blew in and melted the snow. Temperatures dropped to bone-chilling levels and our dreams dropped with them. Here we set, longing for the return of our winter. Is it global warming or simply a weather phenomenon?
