Winter Wonders - Wondering When Spring Will Come

I wish I was writing about flowers today.

But I'm not. Yesterday, at my son's house, it got down to -14F (-25.5 C)

So instead, I am still blogging about the beauty of ice.

Susquehanna River, Binghamton, NY
Still blogging about frozen rivers.
People I know are still driving on frozen roads (picture by my "guest photographer")

But things are slowly turning around. I hear birds singing even when it is cold.

The sunset is getting later and later.  Sunday, Daylight Savings Time will begin, and we will have light into the evening once again.

We haven't had a harsh winter like this in some years, and just aren't used to them anymore. But this won't even be a record for us.  It's hard to believe, but our snowfall is just about at the average.

If you think it, it will come.

I'm thinking spring.  Are you?


  1. I love Spring and Fall weather the best and could do away with Winter and Summer. :) These pictures are beautiful! What type of camera did you use to create the shots?

    1. Except for the "frozen road" photo, these were take with an iPhone 4S. I don't even use my camera anymore. Thank you for the compliment!

  2. I don't want to make you feel bad at all, but the daffodils are blooming under giant horse chestnut trees outside. I don't understand why England's winter was so mild and yours so severe. The weather is a mystery. Hope spring will reward you for your patience and endurance soon.

  3. I cannot wait until spring arrives. Our garden is finally starting to look more alive and the daffodils are starting to come out! It all looks very pretty! :)

  4. Ice makes for great photo ops but I'm sure you've had your fill of it by now!
