Where are you, Winter?

By Silver Blue | 1 comment


You used to come and visit. Take 1973, in Charleston, SC:

Dad, The snowman, “Tiny”, our chihuahua, and me.

Then, in March 1980, also in Charleston:

From the left, my friend Karan Steinmeyer, me (yes, my foot is on my skateboard — don’t ask, I don’t know why!), and friend Patty Scofield.

1984, in Virginia:

Not much snow, but enough to make a snowman. (Oh, and Polaroid film!)

Jump forward to 2010:

Snow and ice. Brr!

We had our share of snow… a good 6-8 inches (which, for Virginia, is a good snowfall). But even that amount of snow could not…

…disturb Buddha from his contemplations. (This photo was when Buddha was at his original home in Norfolk, before he came to stay with me for a while — he’s currently on my hearth.)

Silver Blue, who is cursing this 60 and 70 degree weather at the end of January. I want my cold weather, I want my snow… to kill the bugs, and to make me appreciate the spring and summer more!!!

    Yes, those are croquet mallets as arms on the Snowman from 1973. Hey, you use what you have, yes? LOL!
